Many clinicians believe that competent practice with sexually diverse individuals, their partners, and their family members is not significantly different than practice with any other client or population – with the exception, perhaps, of additional sensitivity. This training will explore how negotiating a sexually diverse identity poses distinct clinical challenges and requires a unique body of knowledge and skills. Participants will build a common language for learning, and explore contemporary models of affirmative practice with the LGBTQ+ community that incorporates developmental, strengths based, and postmodern approaches. Case examples will be utilized to illustrate the principles discussed.

Upon conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify 5 key components of sexual identity.
  • Understand 3 principles of an affirmative model for clinical work with LGBTQ individuals.
  • Consider the impact of stigma on LGBTQ+ individuals.
  • Apply 8 guidelines for assessment of LGBTQ+ individuals.
