Working Effectively with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Ethnic and Racial Minorities
Presenter:
Ezequiel Peña, PhD
Working effectively with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds requires specialized training and development of cultural competence. In addition, working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities likewise requires specialized training and competence. Whereas psychotherapy training programs have become more attentive in training therapists to work with culturally diverse populations, training in working with LGBT communities remains inadequate. When specialized training in LGBT issues as well as in cultural diversity does occur, instruction in one area often happens in isolation from the other. The result is often that the needs of ethnic and racial minority LGBT clients and their families are not addressed simultaneously. This workshop is designed to provide participants with an understanding of working with ethnic and racial minority LGBT communities. The workshop presenter will address the nuances of working with individuals at these intersections of identity and provide suggestions for working effectively with these communities
