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. Schedule:
