Reid: Sensuality Conference and so as people sign in, hit some emoticons. Because emoticons…they will make it rain. Emoticon is fabulous. Do you wanna be in this, too? Okay. So what did we what did we learn today? Does anyone wanna share?

Cathy: Dr. Karen Blair gave an amazing talk about the differences of support people get in same sexes and sex and relationships and there was a really insightful about how much the….the they were able to get a support and the resilient they can be even if there’s not, there are support that they’re not getting a support in general. They’re just really resilient. They’re just really insightful [Inaudible 00:00:50].

Dr. Liz: Yeah. Very well said. I really appreciated her the way that she explains that findings indicated how important friends support is for people who are in same-sex relationships.

Reid: Yep!

Dr. Liz: In an inverse fashion to family. It can really.. that that can be a something it’s very little challenging for a lot people too in same sex relationships. And it continue to increase resilience where when people have negative opinions about their relationship, they’re less likely to have an impact to them.

Cathy: Or like…it’s like there it’s you know…

Reid: Talk to the camera ‘coz it’s noisy, Very important

Cathy: They said, that there…that the people that were not related as closely were less supportive and they were wondering if it’s because they push them away if they’re not. If family wasn’t so supportive, they don’t care. And I know that’s cheap for me if I they’re not super supportive I’m not gonna tell them all of the details.

Reid: Other things that we learn today?

Girl 2: We are not interested in that support anyway

All: Yeah

Girl 2: so it doesn’t matter to me as much or it doesn’t

Dr. Ruthie: We had great time in trans topics. And if people would want wanna see close to #explorepain2017.

Reid: Something I learn today, well for…for your panel that you two did with Heather, what I really loved was the idea of how you set the container for we’re kind of on the edge of a conversation that hasn’t might not have great language yet. So if you know please feel free in the class to raise your hand and let’s have the discussion if something problematic comes up. If we can do it live like let’s do a live its because the entire conversation is not getting direct about perfectionism and shame things like that

Dr. Zelaika: Yeah, things happen like you….if you mess up, who can you go to, who can you be held accountable with?
