Support Services

Support Services offer various programs to address social determinants of health, including housing and employment coaching and placement, among other critically needed services.

This training is intended to help service providers more closely follow best practices in the application of culturally competent services with LGBTQ+ populations. Diversity competency will be presented as a critical aspect of all social services, and not just a “sub-specialty area”. Models for addressing, teaching and training diversity competency will be presented. Emphasis will be on identifying key systemic and contextual elements that have impacted the identity development of these populations and how they, in turn, should be integrated into treatment to allow for a holistic approach. Although the presentation will follow a lecture format, participants will be involved in interactive exercises, discussion and analysis of videos and case vignettes.

Objectives: As a result of attending this training, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize key socio-historical events that shaped the identity development of LGBTQ populations
  • List factors in the client’s social map that influence sexual identity development
  • Recognize unique challenges faced by subsets of the LGBTQ community
  • Utilize approaches that are evidenced based and holistic in supporting members of this population
