Description

J-TEN: Introduction to Queer Affirmative Therapy

Presented by Luis Ramirez, LCSW

This workshop is appropriate for all who engage with LGBTQ people. Attendees will gain a better understanding of what a queer affirmative approach is and how to provide queer affirmative support to LGBTQ people and their families. The need for a queer affirmative approach is especially urgent in light of the many mental health challenges that confront LGBTQ individuals and the lack of training and/or understanding by providers who need more up to date knowledge of the unique needs of the LGBTQ community. This workshop will support attendees increase their awareness of how they might participate in the reproduction of heteronormativity and explore possibilities to resist and process these enactments with their LGBTQ clients, patients and consumers.

Please note: Those choosing the continuing education option will receive 3 contact hours. Please check to see if NBCC contact hours will meet your continuing education needs.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:
  • understand the pathological frames often used in clinical practice in relation to LGBTQ clients
  • critique these pathological frames and construct new clinical tools to engage LGBTQ clients
  • identify clinicians' process of internalizing superiority in relation to heteronormativity.
