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

Join us for our upcoming webinar on September 27, 2019 at 12:00-2:00 EST

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 NBCC CE’s Available.

Words Can Hurt:
Staying Competent in LGBTGEQIAP+ Terminology

Join us for our upcoming webinar on August 30, 2019 at 12:00-2:00 EST

Is it sexual or affectional orientation? What is asexual, pansexual, genderqueer? What does the G stand for? When working with LGBTGEQIAP+ people, the terminology is not only expansive, it has changed quickly, leaving many counselors and other mental health professionals unsure of appropriate terms and their meanings. Using outdated, stigmatized terms can cause harm to clients/students, the therapeutic relationship, and the client's view of counseling.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 NBCC CE’s Available.
