Educational Goals: In this workshop we will understand how the recognition of multiple identities, intersectionality, a spectrum of gender, and cultural backlash have intensified the assessment and evaluation of individual differences. We will apply this critically important understanding to provide more effective psychotherapy with these populations. We will see how such differences have raised new ethical issues not previously considered or believed rare. We will see how emerging knowledge, the need for new skills, and the demands upon us to reimagine the impact of transference and counter-transference require continued learning and personal development. This workshop will bring into focus this dialog about the work of psychotherapy and our ethical values and principles.

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify two relevant ethical issues related to LGBTQIA+ populations.
  2. Identify three skills needed for working with these populations.
  3. Recognize two counter-transference issues related to LGBTQIA+ populations.
