Starting to look at the governments #ConversionTherapy documents. I wonder what the @BACP, @UKCP_Updates @BPSOfficial @BPSSexualities @BritPsyCouncil @ncs_counselling @PinkTherapyUK all think about the highlighted section here? I especially wonder what the #MoU2 think. I also want to point out that there is a brag about us being in the @ILGAEurope top 10.

The UK was first in 2015 or 2016.
In 2021 we have slipped to 10th. What does that tell you?

At the end of #AceWeek, I wanted to highlight some of the terms you might hear under the #AsexualUmbrella

Alt-Text in the thread 🧵

Asexuality is defined as a lack of sexual attraction to others/ low/ absent interest in/ desire for sexual activity. Asexuality is sometimes called ace.

So important, this is amazing for @BPSOfficial to fight for.

I worked for a school that had #isolationbooths for children. The vast majority of kids were Pupil Premium or had additional needs, disabilities and special educational needs. I probably wasn't the best employee, because I rarely kept these kids in isolation. I would sit with them and explore what was happening and why they'd been sent to me.

I had kids self-harm there, threaten others, melt-down. But that was seen as "bad behaviour"
