Safe Zone Training
September 14, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm CDT
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, & queer (LGBTQ) terminology is constantly evolving, but is the field of psychology evolving with it? While psychology practitioners progressively acknowledge the value in supporting LGBTQ clients, clinical training programs historically do a better job of addressing issues of race & ethnicity as opposed to sexual orientation. Take action by engaging in this interactive presentation where participants will explore current terminology & identities related to LGBTQ student & client communities.
