Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Clients: Clinical Issues and Treatment Strategies

 

Join in for this breakthrough workshop to develop core competencies and transform your skills to achieve better therapeutic outcomes.

  • Avoid the top mistakes therapists make
  • Become the go-to LGBTQ therapist
  • Be on top of the up-to-date language and terms

Are you making the biggest mistake of treating your LGBTQ clients? Are you pushing them to “come out”? And if you are…you could be traumatizing your clients.

Like you, I made the same mistake early in my career of forcing my clients to name and claim their sexual identity.

Like you, I didn’t know how to ask them about their sexual practices. And when I tried, I offended them.

Immerse yourself during my workshop and I will equip you 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.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Clients: Clinical Issues and Treatment Strategies

You will learn transformational strategies to treat the unique challenges your client may be facing such as:

  • self-acceptance and internalised homophobia
  • non hetero-normative sexual behaviors and practices
  • trauma and abuse from growing up LGBTQ
  • the difficult process of coming out

Also, let me help you 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.
