Event description
An essential CPD training day for any ethical therapist wanting to learn more about working with LGBT+ clients

About this Event

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TRAINING IS NOW TAKING PLACE ONLINE VIA SKYPE DUE TO COVID-19. PLEASE BOOK YOUR PLACE AS NORMAL AND I WILL SEND THE SKYPE DETAILS TO YOU.

LGBT+ affirmative therapy is about having a true understanding of the specific issues and challenges that LGBT+ people face, plus knowledge of the barriers that many LGBT+ people face when trying to access health and therapeutic services, and being truly accepting of LGBT+ people's identities. It goes beyond simply being ok with LGBT+ people or being fine with working with that community. It's much more in-depth than that and in the present day every ethical therapist should be LGBT+ affirmative.

As a therapist and as a human being I am fully LGBT+ affirmative. I don't mind sharing that I am LGBT+, which means I have a lived experience to draw on in addition to the knowledge and skills that I'm able to utilise when working with LGBT+ clients.

If you are a therapist and wanting to become LGBT+ affirmative then I am here to help you to achieve that. I'm a renowned leader in this area and have trained over 1,000 people so far in how to be LGBT+ aware and affirmative.

This one day training course will equip you with all the knowledge, understanding and confidence needed to be a truly LGBT+ affirmative therapist.

The training covers:

- What being an LGBT+ affirmative therapist means

- Specific issues faced by the LGBT+ community

- Barriers faced by LGBT+ people accessing therapeutic services

- Understanding LGBT+ identities

- Challenging your prejudices and belief systems

- How to work with LGBT+ clients in an affirmative way

The training involves lots of discussion and group work. Take-away resources will be provided, including:

- Glossary of LGBT+ terminology

- Copy of the accompanying slideshow (don’t worry, the training is not death by Powerpoint)

All delegates will also receive one month’s personal support from me and a certificate of attendance to show that you are an LGBT+ affirmative therapist.

Investment: £180 per delegate

Location: Online via Skype
