Continuing Education Hours: 2 CEs for LPC, SW, LMFT, and Psychologists
Description: The goal of this 2 hour presentation is to enhance our understanding of the ways in which gender identity and sexual orientation intersect with other cultural identities such as race, ethnicity, age, ability, and immigration status, and the impact this has on experiencing violence. This engaging presentation will explore the unique clinical experiences of LGBTQ survivors of harassment, discrimination, and/or violent crimes. Using an affirmative, trauma-informed approach, this facilitator will guide you through case examples and review best practices when working with members of these vulnerable populations.
Participants will be able to
- Review types of crimes impacting LGBTQ individuals
- Develop insight into some of the many ways LGBTQ folks survive, heal, grow, and thrive in the face of discrimination, oppression, limited visibility, and violent crimes
- Discuss best practices when providing clinical support
