The LGBT+ population is one that is marginalized and typically underrepresented. Having any baseline of knowledge is helpful to begin to understand how to best help, treat, and care for these clients. Especially in our current time and climate, it is crucial to have the background and information to show our clients that we are a safe space and are able to discuss all the things they need to in order to get the most out of their therapeutic experience. This training aims to meet the needs of a baseline knowledge of the LGBT+ community as well as to start the conversation about what is important to know as a clinician and what skills can be effective.
