LGBTQ Youth: Clinical Strategies to Support Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Sep 28, 2018 at Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis/Carmel, Carmel, Indiana, United States of America. Course Description: Recently, the LGBTQ community has been in the national spotlight for challenging issues like which bathroom a transgender person should use, increased youth suicide rates, and the Pulse nightclub tragedy. No wonder youth in our communities are scared to be open about who they are. As a clinician, how are you supposed to help an LGBTQ youth when their parents are just not on board? Also as a clinician, do you know what type of treatment techniques to suggest when a transgender youth wants to prolong hitting puberty? These are the types of questions clinicians struggle with. Join expert and author, Lee-Anne Gray, PsyD, as she draws on her many years of working with LGBTQ youth. Lee-Anne will show you effective clinical strategies for: • Coming out • Bullying • Suicide, anxiety, shame, depression, self-harming • Making healthy choices • Thriving in school • Options for guiding gender transition Working with these youth and families can be complex, requiring the balance of many seemingly opposing viewpoints. As a clinician, there is nothing more rewarding than facilitating these changes and watching families discover their own path towards understanding. Course Objectives: • Assess how school, family and social pressures impact the formation of an LGBTQ youth’s identity. • Support the coming out process with youth clients and facilitate family interventions to create safety, support, space, and acceptance. • Analyze LGBTQ youth clients’ level of risk and protective factors for developing symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as self-harm behaviors and suicidal ideation. • Assess family dynamics of the client to determine potential to work towards increased acceptance and support. • Assist transgender clients in the readiness process for medical gender transition and compose letters of support for clients to obtain medical gender transition treatments. • Foster LGBTQ affirmative school environments with strategies for working in conjunction with school staff, administration and parents.
