This workshop will provide clinical information and resources for social workers and other professionals who work with LGBTQ youth in a wide variety of settings. We will discuss current language and terminology within the LGBTQ community and keys to building a positive working alliance. For social workers to be culturally competent with LGBTQ clients and families, we must understand relevant issues, such as higher rates of depression, suicidality, victimization, substance use/abuse and religious rejection. We will discuss affirmative ways to support youth struggling to come out, as well as how to provide support for their families. This workshop will also provide a list of local and online resources for both LGBTQ youth and their families.
