Description

A 9-year-old boy took his own life, just days after coming out to his peers as gay, due to the severe bullying he received. Sadly, he is not alone, suicide rates among LGBTQ youth are rising at an alarming pace.

As a clinician, how do you approach a sensitive topic like gender identity without offending your clients? How do you navigate the LGBTQ spectrum, with its unique terminology and challenges? How are you supposed to help an LGBTQ youth client when their parents are not on board?

You are not alone in struggling with these types of questions. Join expert and author, Deb Coolhart, PhD, LMFT as she draws on her nearly 20 years of working with LGBTQ youth. Deb will show you effective clinical strategies for: 

  • The coming out process
  • Bullying
  • Suicide, anxiety, shame, depression, self-harming
  • Making healthy choices
  • Thriving in school
  • Developing support networks

Working with these youth and families can be complex, requiring the balance of many seemingly opposing viewpoints. As a clinician, there is nothing more rewarding than facilitating these changes and watching families discover their own path towards understanding.

Help LGBTQ kids and adolescents know that it’s their right to be themselves!
