Counselling LGBTQ+ Individuals

Presented by Kevin G. Alderson, Ashleigh Yule, MA, R. Psych

This 4-hour workshop will provide relevant and practical information regarding assessing and counselling LGBTQ+ clients. We will explore evidence-based practical strategies to create safer, more inclusive, and competent counselling environments for LGBTQ+ clients. Participants will also review concepts related to gender identity, gender expression, sexual and affectional orientation, and will have opportunity to update vocabularies and terminology in these areas. Presenters will share data-informed best practices for counselling LGBTQ+ clients through didactic, interactive, and role-play modalities. We will also review case examples and first-person narratives to support participants in perspective taking and empathy building for the LGBTQ+ clients in their practices and programs.
