Are you making the biggest mistake treating your LGBTQ clients? Are you asking them about their sexual practices? Or are you too worried you will offend your client?

Join this workshop and equip yourself with the right tools and up-to-date information you need in this rapidly changing population to more effectively counsel your lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning clients, and couples about sexual issues. Also, avoid the common mistake of believing, “a couple is a couple” and treating LGBTQ couples the same as their heterosexual counterparts.

Don’t be the straight therapist that is losing LGBTQ clients because of poor intake, assessment and treatment planning. Learn how to offer your clients a safe place for therapy.

You will learn specific strategies to better treat the unique challenges your client may be facing.

Educational Objectives:

  • Establish different ways to talk about sex with your LGBTQ clients.
  •  Identify internalized homophobia, transphobia, biphobia and lesbian phobia.
  •  Plan a way for an LGBTQ spouse to integrate their identity into their mixed orientation relationship.
  •  Identifying specifics on how gay male and lesbian couples differ from heterosexual couples
  •  Talking about porn, kinks, fetishes and sexual practices amongst LGBTQ
  •  Non hetero-normative sexual behaviors and practices
  •  Create a treatment plan in working with transgender youth
