Working with LGBTQ individuals typically initially involves helping the client identify and grow in self-acceptance of their sexual orientation. Once that is done, often the consensus is that the LGBT+ individual has no more or less issues than the rest of the population. Yet, many of us find that when working with both adolescents and adults who are LGBT+ identified, this may not be the case. Members of the LGBTQ community face the question of coming out over and over again each time they meet a new person or encounter a new social situation whether as adolescents, adults or older adults. This constant reminder of their “differentness” can lead to anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal.

This experiential-based workshop will examine these challenges and the therapy techniques using cases that include adolescents, adults and older adults. We will discuss challenges covering three themes in working with LGBT+ individuals, coming out again and again; relationships and facing illness; and old age. This workshop will also discuss some of the basic techniques of Post Structural Feminist Therapy, which meets the APA standards for best practice in working with LGBTQ+ individuals, and how it can help the practitioner help clients to cope with both political and personal challenges in assessment, treatment planning and developing effective interventions across the three themes.
