Clinical Frameworks and Applications in Working with LGBTQ+ People of Color
Copyright :


LGBTQ+ Clients of Color confront multiple systems of social oppression, such as racism, cissexism, and heterosexism, which results in unique, intersectional stressors and compounding stress. These experiences are thought to contribute to high rates of mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation. Nevertheless, LGBTQ+ Clients of Color have distinctive strengths that buffer the worst of societal oppression’s consequences. Due to bias, mental health and behavioral health settings have either neglected or ill-treated this community leading to further harm. Therefore, there remain opportunities within these environments for mental health practitioners and mental health systems to alleviate these toxic stressors and leverage LGBTQ+ Clients of Color’s strengths to improve mental health outcomes. During this workshop, Hayden Dawes demonstrates how practitioners can identify these stressors while bolstering the client’s inner resources. The workshop will focus on key frameworks such as intersectionality and cultural humility with an overview of transdiagnostic dimensions and applications in working with LGBTQ+ People of Color.
