Therapist Neurodiversity Collective’s Neurodiversity-Affirming Practices Series
Live Event with Dr. Monique Botha (They/Them)
The Relevance of Minority Stress, Intersectionality, and Community Connectedness for Affirmative Therapeutic Practice
Subject matter: Intersectional neurodiversity, neurodiversity-affirming therapists, affirmative therapy practices
Dr. Monique Botha is an autistic and ADHDer Community Psychologist and Research Fellow at the University of Stirling. Their research predominantly focuses on the role of minority stress and marginalisation in explaining mental health, wellbeing, and quality of life for neurodivergent people, and furthermore, how social structures (including research) can perpetuate and facilitate such marginalisation. Prior to research, Monique worked as a social care worker with autistic people and their families, as well as in palliative care for young and middle-aged disabled adults. Lastly, Monique is a co-founder of the recently established Stigma and Autism Research Network, which aims to bring together people to address the systemic marginalisation of autistic people through research and community action.
Active members will receive a Zoom invitation the week of the event.
