Disability, Gender and Sexuality
Copyright :


Disabled people constitute 15% of the population globally and 26% of adults within the United States alone. Despite being one of the largest minoritized groups, disabled people are often overlooked and underserved within the field of mental health, given that ableism and sanism are ubiquitous in clinical practice. Disabled LGBTQ+ people are no exception. In this presentation, Dr. Iantaffi will provide a brief overview of the issues impacting disabled LGBTQ+ clients and clinicians and use the Disability Justice framework to offer some guiding principles that clinicians can apply to their own practice.
