Words Can Hurt: Staying Competent in LGBTGEQIAP+ Terminology for CE Credit

Is it sexual or affectional orientation? What is asexual, pansexual, genderqueer? What does the GE stand for? When working with LGBTGEQIAP+ people, the terminology is not only expansive, it has changed quickly, leaving many counselors and mental health professionals unsure of appropriate terms and their meanings. Using outdated, stigmatized terms can cause harm to clients, the therapeutic relationship, and the client's view of counseling. This interactive webinar educates both new and seasoned professionals on the most updated terms, as well as problematic terms to avoid. 2 CE Credits.

Rainbow Counselors: Becoming Competent in Affirmative & Celebratory Counseling with Queer & Trans People for CE Credit

What does it take to be competent to work with LGBTGEQIAP+ people? Many mental health specialists are open to working with Queer and Trans people, but openness does not translate to competence. Within this workshop, participants will learn how self-awareness, knowledge of client’s lives, privilege, marginalization, advocacy, and specific affirmative, liberatory, and celebratory counseling skills are needed to provide quality counseling to LGBTGEQIAP+ people. Using ALGBTIC competencies, participants will identify where they currently are on their continual journey of learning and building competence when working with LGBTGEQIAP+ people. 2 CE Credits.

Comments from our Evaluations:

  • Amazing, comprehensive, and very useful information.
  • It was informative. It was helpful. It was positive and educational. I loved it. I just spent four years in a location that did not practice this way and this was so healing to hear all of this.
  • The content was excellent and informative. The speaker was very knowledgeable, and presented very well. Clear and fluid.
  • I appreciate the non-judgmental and informative style of presentation. For those who are still learning, the material was presented in a way that simply encouraged a new practice rather than shamed older practices.
  • The depth of knowledge shared and the direct applicability of this to my work as a practicing counselor and counselor educator.

A GSA is Not Enough: Supporting Queer & Trans Youth in Schools for CE Credit

A substantial body of research supports the implementation of GSAs in schools. However, LGBTGEQIAP+ students may still encounter numerous barriers and these unmet needs can limit their success in academic, personal-social, and career domains.

This interactive webinar educates both new and seasoned professionals on actions that can be taken to support LGBTGEQIAP+ students at the institutional level through systemic practices, at the group level by using proximal interventions, and also at the individual and family level by using a flexible and simple tool developed by the presenter for working with LGBTGEQIAP+ students and their families. 2 CE Credits.
