Holding Space for Pride

Written by

Join us on Friday, June 17 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. MST for our webinar, "Holding Space for Pride: Best Practices in Intersectional LGBTQ+ Affirmative Care". 

To commemorate LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, this presentation will discuss best practices in queer affirmative care. We will discuss the latest updates in identity development and protective factors of the community, as well as discuss intersectionality of religious and ethnic culture as it relates to members of our community. 

This presentation will present up-to-date research on topics affecting LGBTQ+ individuals in the context of treatment, as well as provide best practices and model therapeutic approaches for intersectional topics (e.g. race, gender, relationship configuration, religious belief).

By the end of this presentation, attendees should be able to:

1) Identify key aspects of sexuality development, gender development, and identify development in the LGBTQ+ population;

2) Describe three ways of applying evidence-based principles from research or tailoring existing interventions for intersectional LGBTQ+ populations; and,

3) Identify resources for seeking additional consultation and learning for building competence in working with LGBTQ+ population.
