Is He Gay? Exploring Modern LGBTQ Identities and Sexuality

About this Event

JSSA Training Institute is pleased to announce training on effective approaches to working with the LGBTQ community

DATE: Dec 10, 2019

TIME: 9am-12:15pm

Binary. Non-Binary. PreP. TasP. Open. Queer. The LGBTQ community is constantly evolving, including it’s expression and sexuality. Therapists can sometimes feel lost, not knowing exactly what is being said, missing important information about clients' identities and relationships. In this workshop, you will explore terminology and concepts regarding sexual orientation and gender identity, while also expanding your understanding of sex positive approaches to working with these populations.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how to distinguish between the major concepts of sexuality and gender identity.

2. Have a working awareness of biases they carry with them about LGBTQ clients.

3. Become more attuned to the cultural dynamics occurring between the clinician and LGBTQ clients.
