Presented by Syah Taylor

Syah Taylor, Manager of Rainbow Alley, will define internalized oppression and identify the damaging effects it has on the mental health of LGBTQ+ individuals through an intersectional lens in this workshop. Through dialogue, participants will identify internalized oppression in their lives. Participants will learn tools and strategies from a strengths-based approach rooted in positive psychology that can be implemented in their careers, school life, and personal development. Disrupting these unhealthy beliefs and behaviors can lead to increased self-motivation, productivity and overall life satisfaction.
