CDP Presents: Working with LGBT Service Members - Online via Adobe Connect
This event will be held 15 June 2017, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Eastern, with one hour of instruction and additional time for a Q&A period.

Description:
In this 90-minute webinar (60 minutes instruction, 30 minutes Q&A), participants will obtain a better understanding of working with LGBT Service members and Veterans. We will provide data related to rates of LGBT persons in the civilian, military and Veteran communities. In addition, we will provide an overview of the history of LGBT individuals in the US and within the military. The presentation will discuss some of the negative consequences of the stigma associated with LGBT populations and the impact of military culture and policy on stigma. Participants will leave with knowledge about the theoretical background, guidelines and recommendations for LGBT affirmative interventions. Finally, we will conclude with providing some of the resources available within the military and the community for LGBT persons.. 

System Requirements:
This course will be presented via Adobe Connect teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary with updated Flash (11.2+) is required. Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm). We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Adobe Connect in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties.

Microphones and webcams are not necessary, but you will need a computer with working speakers or headphones. It is recommended that Mac users access the training link using either the Chrome or Firefox browser to minimize problems. Everyone must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one machine. 

If you encounter connections issues when using your computer, the Adobe Connect app is available for iOS and Android devices. We will also be posting a recording of the presentation for on-demand viewing after the completion of the event. However, CEs will not be available for the recorded version.

Continuing Education Details:
All participants who register, attend and complete a short post-training evaluation/assessment will be eligible to receive one free CE. CEs will be provided through PESI, Inc. For information about recognizing bodies and disciplines, click here.
