Workshop Information:

This workshop will assist licensees in the ethical treatment of sexual minorities by challenging clinicians to explore themes that often come up with sexual minorities in mental health treatment. Sexual identity development is not often thought about by folks whose gender and sexual identity coincide with social norms. By providing licensees with an experiential connection to the process of understanding one’s own sexuality, this workshop hopes to give licensees access to the process that sexual minorities often experience on their path to sexual identity liberation. Additionally, this experience will provide licensees with an additional tool in ethically treating and understanding their sexually conforming clients in treatment. The whole of this presentation, including a review of the literature as well as the experiential component, will work together to provide mental health clinicians with a valuable new perspective on their own internal attitudes toward bisexuality and homosexuality. ey already have about the LGB community.
