Description

From the deeply personal and intricate journeys clients take to find themselves to the variety of terms and ideas in today’s LGBTQ cultures, it’s easy to feel lost in the complexity of sexual and gender identity. But with the proper tools and knowledge, you can have confidence to walk solidly side by side with your LGBTQ clients.

This recording provides clear strategies to comfortably engage clients around cultural norms, gender, sex, relationships, and terminology. In addition to building trust and credibility with your LGBTQ clients, you will learn the navigation map that will help you appropriately tailor your treatment approaches each step of the way in the client’s self-discovery process.

Aaron Testard combines time-tested research with the latest findings and up-to-date movements in the field for a comprehensive approach for working with any LGBTQ client in any phase and on any part of the sexuality-gender spectrums.

    • When sexual behavior doesn’t match sexual identity
    • Differentiate between feelings, behavior, and identity
    • The importance of continued sexual health assessment and education
  • Phase 2: Comparison and Consideration
    • When clients start to think they might be LGBTQ (or at least different)
    • Client cues that are openings to explore further
    • Questions to elicit more open discussion
    • How to inquire without pushing beyond client readiness
  • Phase 3: Tolerance and Exploration
    • When clients are exploring sexuality and gender but have not claimed an identity
    • Use different models of sexuality and gender with clients
    • Track for integration: Is this helpful for the client?
    • Address shame and internalized homophobia/transphobia
    • Identify educational resources
  • Phase 4: Acceptance

    • Tools to navigate the conflicting worlds of family, identity, and cultures
  • Phase 5: Pride
    • Address client rage about oppression and past injuries (even when it’s directed toward you)
    • Support clients in celebrating their “adolescence”: validation and safety
    • Attend to the particular challenges of bisexuals
  • Phase 6: Synthesis and Integration
    • When being LGBTQ is hardly an issue for the client
    • Effectively integrate LGBTQ history and knowledge into the clinical session
