How to Become an LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapist


By: Rick Grant-Coons, Psy.D.


LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning) is not a neutral approach. It is based on the understanding that LGBTQ people are not just tolerated but celebrated for their value in any culture. This perspective is essential for effective therapy since it challenges many years of hostility inflicted by a heterosexist culture. Participates of this training will learn specific clinical interventions and assessment tools to more effectively treat LGBTQ clients, be able to assess psychological trauma of growing up LGBTQ+ and know how internalized stigma impacts development and will also know the six distinct stages of the coming out process to provide optimal amount of support to the client.
