About the Event:

Objectives:

1)      Provide an overview of LGBTQ concepts and terminology

2)      Explore the differences between sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and biological sex

3)      Recognize specific experiences of LGBTQ people within our communities and therapeutic settings, including health and social disparities

4)      Examine clinical considerations for providing affirming and ethical care to LGBTQ individuals

5)      Provide relevant resources for clinicians and clients

Workshop Summary:

All of us hold a myriad of identities, including a sexual orientation and gender identity. This didactic workshop will provide clinical mental health providers with information and resources to better support their LGBTQ clients. We will examine lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and/or questioning (LGBTQ) concepts and terminology through the lens of cultural humility. The workshop will highlight social and health disparities faced by the LGBTQ community and examine specific supportive factors and concrete strategies clinicians can utilize to promote physical and emotional safety. The discussion will also provide an overview of resources, both for the professional and their clients, in helping all individuals live their true and authentic selves.
