In this episode of Pride & Prejudice, we are looking at Queer Affirmative Counselling Practices or QACP. QACP goes beyond mere acceptance of queerness in people going for therapy. It is about questioning existing therapy practices through a queer lens and expanding the possibilities of how therapy can serve a queer client.
Our reporter Suryatapa Mukherjee spoke to Shruti Chakravarty, the Chief Advisor at Mariwala Health Initiative and faculty of their QACP training course. She also spoke to co-founders of Guftagu Therapy Aryan Somaiya and Sadaf Vidha who practice Queer Affirmative Counselling. We look at how this approach helps those who go to queer-affirmative therapists, how QACP came about in the first place and its limitations.
