This course is designed for mental health professionals who are treating clients who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender and wish to deepen their knowledge base. This workshop will differentiate the groups as four distinct communities with unique challenges and attributes.

Participants will develop a more nuanced understanding of the language used regarding gender and sexuality, developing an understanding of the way gender binary and cisgender privilege can affect clients and practitioner’s thinking. Learn what health data shows related to each of these populations individually and where health disparities exist compared to the heterosexual population. The workshop will provide an opportunity to explore ingrained attitudes about sex, gender, and sexual behavior, increasing your sensitivity and knowledge for working with clients. Class size is limited to 30.
