COU CN632 - Interventions When Working With LGBTQIA+ People and their Families

(Credits: 3)

Students in this course will learn about specific therapeutic approaches when working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their families. The course will begin with a broad discussion of treatment issues when working with this population (e.g., disaffirming therapy, evidence-based professional practice, affirmative counseling). Subsequently the literature on best practices for working with subgroups within the LGBTQIA+ population (e.g., gay men, lesbians, bisexual & pansexual people, transgender and gender non-conforming people, intersex people, asexual & two-spirit people, among others) will be discussed.
