Are you making the biggest mistake treating your LGBTQ clients? Are you pushing them to “come out”? And if you are…you could be traumatizing your clients.
I made the same mistake early in my career of forcing my clients to name and claim their sexual identity.
I didn’t know how to ask them about their sexual practices. And when I tried, I offended them.
Come to my workshop and I will equip you with the right tools and up-to-date information you need in this rapidly changing population to more effectively counsel your lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning clients, and couples.
You will learn specific strategies to better treat the unique challenges your client may be facing such as:
Also, let me help you avoid the common mistake of believing, “a couple is a couple” and treating LGBTQ couples the same as their heterosexual counterparts.
Don’t be a therapist that is losing LGBTQ clients because of poor intake, assessment and treatment planning. Learn how to offer your clients a safe place for therapy.
I look forward to meeting you at my workshop!
