Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Diversity: Understanding the Needs of LGBT Individuals

ID: 5579

This workshop provides an in-depth examination of sexual orientation and gender identity diversity, with a focus on the psychological and social issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, as it relates to the provision of care in the social service context. Topics include LGBT subculture, the impact of prejudice, discrimination, and the "heterosexual assumption" on LGBT individuals and on the LGBT community. Use of inclusive language and other techniques for creating environments that are welcoming for LGBT individuals will be addressed, and how professionals can help youth and adults who are questioning their sexualities or genders. The workshop also examines common stereotypes and attitudes toward LGBT people, including the origins of these stereotypes, related research findings, and effective techniques for addressing the stereotypes and attitudes of others.
