Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity: Supporting LGBTQ Youth, Families, and Communities (2 CE Hours - APA)

Presented by: Paul Hobson, Ph.D.

Location: Zoom - access meeting link here; Meeting ID: 872 2929 8504 Passcode: 840532

Description:  While LGBTQ individuals are estimated to make up around six percent of the population, recent polling suggests upwards of 1 in 6 generation Z adults identify as LGBTQ. Navigating Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity can be a challenge for youth and families alike. LGBTQ individuals experience an increased risk in health and well-being outcomes. These disparities are largely explained by experiences of bias, discrimination, victimization, and rejection by peers and family members. Mental health and education providers are uniquely positioned to provide supports and build strengths in LGBTQ youth and families as they explore these identities, build community, and advocate for themselves and others.

This session will help providers understand the experience of LGBTQ individuals, explore risk and resilience well-being pathways, and develop strategies for helping youth and their families navigate the development of healthy identities in gender and sexuality.
