We are witnessing the dawn of a new civil rights movement, and the question is no longer whether we will have LGBTQIA clients, but when, and whether we will be adequately prepared to serve these populations respectfully. So let's talk about sex, and gender, and what - if anything - the two have to do with one another. This workshop will provide participants with a clear understanding of sexual orientation, sexual identity, and gender identity. It is appropriate for participants with any level of knowledge regarding these identities, and will be a straightforward, accessible, open discussion with opportunities for questions to be asked and answered. Accurate terminology, myths/facts and other information will help practitioners in addressing sexual and gender identity with clients.
The trainer for this session is Mara Gottlieb. Ph.D., LMSW
*Note this training has an early start time and is a half day.
