Beyond Affirmative Care:
Effective Psychotherapy with LGBTQIA+ Clients
Beyond affirmative care is a monthly consultation group for clinicians wishing to develop the knowledge, attitudes, skills, and comfort level needed to work effectively with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender clients.
Clinicians will learn to approach working with LGBTQIA+ clients through multidimensional models of sexual orientation and gender.
We will address:
- Intersections of multiple identities
- Career-related experiences
- Nontraditional relationship forms
- Issues relating to spirituality
- Health disparities impacting communities
Group members will be invited to evaluate their own attitudes and biases that inevitably impact the therapeutic relationship. This group aims to create a non-judgmental space in which to provide relevant resources and share dialogue.
The cost is $60 per group and a three-month commitment is requested. Winter 2023. Through Telehealth.
