Beyond Affirmative Care:
Effective Psychotherapy with LGBTQIA+ Clients
Beyond affirmative care is a monthly consultation group for clinicians wishing to develop their 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. Led by members of the LGBTQIA+ community, this group aims to create a non-judgmental space in which to provide relevant resources.
The group is forming now and meets monthly beginning this summer on the first Tuesday of each month from 10:00am-11:30am.
The cost is $60 per group and a three-month commitment is requested.
