Our speakers for the evening:
Originally hailing from the streets of Brisbane, Laura Mcleod is a provisionally registered Clinical Psychologist studying at James Cook University, Cairns. Her previous research has focused on the complex topic of communicating sexual consent, causing no end of interesting banter/awkward coughing at polite dinner parties. Current her research is focused on the helpful and unhelpful experiences of transgender and non-binary clients seeking psychological support in rural and remote areas of Queensland. Previous research indicates that there is a growing number of people seeking support for non-binary gender identification and a lack of supportive practice in the psychological community.
