And if you are .. you could be traumatizing your clients. I made the same mistake early in my career of forcing my clients to name and claim their sexual identity. I didn’t know how to ask them about their sexual practices. And when I tried, I offended them. Come to my workshop and I will equip you with the right tools and up-to-date information you need in this rapidly changing population to more effectively counsel your lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning clients, and couples. You will learn specific strategies to better treat the unique challenges your client may be facing such as: • self-acceptance and internalized homophobia. • non hetero-normative sexual behaviors and practices. • trauma and abuse from growing up LGBTQ. • the difficult process of coming out. Also, let me help you avoid the common mistake of believing, “a couple is a couple” and treating LGBTQ couples the same as their heterosexual counterparts. Don’t be the straight therapist that is losing LGBTQ clients because of poor intake, assessment and treatment planning. Learn how to offer your clients a safe place for therapy. Course Objectives: • Assess gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning clients for psychological trauma to assist in informing treatments interventions. • Establish and understand the six distinct stages of the coming out process to provide optimal amount of support to the client. • Distinguish between mental health disorders that mimic the effects of the trauma from growing up LGBTQ. • Utilize specific clinical interventions and assessment tools to more effectively treat LGBTQ clients. • Employ adaptable clinical interventions to work more effectively with LGBTQ clients from different generations. • Consider the dynamics of same gendered couple, including vulnerabilities and strengths, when working with LGB couples in session.
