Ambiguous Loss at the Intersection of Religion and Sexuality

With Nancy Thacker, MS, NCC and Jillian Blueford, MA, NCC

Recorded April 2018 at ADEC's Annual Conference

The LGBTQ+ population encounter unique forms of ambiguous loss as they develop and integrate their queer identity into their holistic understanding of self. Negotiation of other identities, particularly a religious/spiritual (R/S) identity, can create complex loss experiences and subsequent unexpected grief. Using a case study example from the presenters’ professional experiences as counselors, this presentation will explore the ambiguous loss experiences of R/S LGBTQ+ individuals and impacts on integrating identity through a social constructivist lens. Implications for practitioners will also be discussed.
