 Clinical Considerations for Supporting LGBTQ* Youth and Their Families

 April 22, 2018 2:00 pm-5:15 pm

 Presented by

 Dr. Harriette E. Wimms and Dr. Whitney C. Hobson

  Clinical Considerations for Supporting LGBTQ* Youth and Their Families will review some of the newest research outlining factors related to risk and resilience for LGBTQ* youth. We will then explore mental health concerns and review psychosocial interventions best suited for provision of affirmative mental health care. Strategies for creating safe and affirming homes, schools and communities will also be explored. The session will conclude with an analysis of tools for mental health screening, school climate assessment, community engagement initiatives, and multisystemic mechanisms for supporting positive outcomes for LGBTQ* youth and communities who embrace them.

 Learning Objectives

  • Participants will develop an understanding of culturally appropriate terms related to LGBTQ youth and mechanisms for providing affirming mental health care to LGBTQ* youth.
  • Presenters will provide participants with an analysis of empirical literature related psychosocial factors associated with positive and negative LGBTQ* youth outcomes—as well as mechanisms for promoting resilience.
  • Participants will develop personalized tools for providing clinical supports to LGBTQ* youth and their families, schools, and communities.

 Dr. Harriette E. Wimms is licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in providing compassion-infused care to children, families, schools, and communities. Dedicated to providing affirming and culturally-responsive therapy, she also specializes in program development, professional training, clinical supervision, and parent education.

 Dr. Whitney C. Hobson is a licensed clinical psychologist providing clinical, program development, and outreach services to individuals, families, groups,communities, and local organizations. Dr. Hobson is driven to understand and empower those across the lifespan with varied intersecting identities and experiences through application of culturally-responsive, affirming approaches.
