Increasing attention is now given to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) populations in the media, yet even mental health providers with basic information about these client populations may not understand the ways that trauma and microaggressions affect these clients’ everyday lives or experiences when seeking help from mental health professionals.
This 2.5-hour, mixed level course is for clinicians who would like to know how to integrate a greater awareness of challenges and strengths of gender and sexual minority clients and move toward providing trauma-informed treatment.
Topics discussed will include:
• Overview of sexual orientation and LGBQ populations and key terminology
• Intersectional approach to examining sexual orientation and gender diversity in relationship to other cultural identities (race, ethnicity, class, ability/disability, religion)
• Impacts of trauma and microaggressions, how these affect clients and their experiences in psychotherapy
