This seminar will offer an overview of issues in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients of all ages. Participants will learn relevant terminology, best practices, and have the opportunity to hear from a panel of guest speakers. This seminar is designed to help participants move from being “LGBT-friendly” to “LGBT-knowledgeable”. This seminar will include information about obstacles that LGBT people face in accessing services as well as opportunities we all have to make our community more inclusive. We welcome you to join us in a safe environment to learn more about how to serve LGBT clients in effective and sensitive ways.
