ACCOUNTABILITY TO LGBTQ PEOPLE: A FOCUS ON CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS
Cultural marginalization related to sexual orientation and gender identity increases vulnerability to abuse and violence while decreasing access to safety. This session will provide an overview of clinical work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and queer people. The presenter will provide a framework for understanding LGBTQ-related terminology, cultural context, and barriers to seeking and receiving care and support. A combination of lecture, interactive activities and individual attendee reflections will help participants build skills in serving LGBTQ people in a sensitive and ethical manner.
