Training Overview Description

Within our westernized society, issues affecting LGBTQIA+ community are garnering public recognition and attention. Despite the current relevance of the LGBTIA+ community in current media, effective culturally responsive treatment approaches and tools are lacking in the diversity of modalities and approaches. How can clinicians learn from and utilize present day attention and historical “invisibilization,” stigma, and shame to develop affirming treatment approaches for LGBTQIA+ people seeking care in their community? This presentation will discuss the influence of homophobia, transphobia, and queer aversion within historical, societal, and personal contexts with focus on the necessity to craft culturally responsive treatment methods for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to differentiate between historical, societal, cultural, and personal manifestations of homophobia and transphobia in an individual's behavioral responses to stress, overwhelm, and trauma.

  • Participants will be able to modify and apply affirming approaches of clinical treatment modalities.

  • Participants will be able to describe historical issues that impact the mental health of historically marginalized and oppressed LGBTQIA+ populations.
