LGBTQIA+ Inclusion in Healthcare –
Clinical Practice and Ethical Issues

Join us for a Live Webinar on November 18, 2022 from 1-3 pm EST
2 CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians

Clinicians have a responsibility to develop enhanced competencies when working with LGBTQIA+ clients.  Creating safe and inclusive spaces, attending to the psychological safety needs of this community, enhancing our clinical assessment and documentation standards, and addressing some of the unique ethical aspects of working with this population are just some of the ways clinicians can improve their skills in partnering with LGBTQIA+ clients.  In this course you will gain valuable skills and an appreciation for how to best create welcoming, safe, and affirming environments, as well as review some of the best practice clinical skills and ethical considerations in working with LGBTQIA+ clients and their support systems.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Explain how the concept of Representation can impact clients seeking services
  • Explain the WPATH standards for clients seeking medical transition services
  • Describe ethical issues that might arise when working with LGBTQIA+ clients

Chris McLaughlin is is presenting two webinars on October 13 and November 18.  Completion of both webinars offers participants the LGBTQIA+ Certificate.  You can enroll in the webinars individually or as a bundle for a reduced price of $90. Last chance to enroll in the bundle is midnight EST before the first event.
