Working Effectively with Gender and Sexual Minorities

 

Sexual and gender minorities are becoming more visible. This includes our colleagues and clients. The ethics code of major mental health organizations specifically states that we cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation. It is important that we learn how to interact with others without unintentional anti-gay or anti-trans behaviors. In this course, you will learn how to make your practices more affirmative by learning about the LGBTQQIA (LGBT) population, influences on LGBT individuals, couples, and families, increasing your self-awareness, LGBT resilience, and the foundations of working effectively with the LGBT population. This course will primarily focus on LGBT individuals, but the knowledge gained can be generalized and applied to anyone in the LGBTQQIA population.
