It is hard enough being a youth these days, but LGBTQIA+ youth often have it harder due to their struggle with a lack of support from parents, families, schools, and communities. Now more than ever, LGBTQIA+ youth need support and understanding. As a clinician, you work hard to do the next right thing, but navigating conversations with youth and their families are tough. This training will help you understand concepts therapists do not commonly learn when working with LGBTQIA+ youth, from the most up-to-date terminology and language to clinical considerations and conversations.
