CE Event: Clinical Work with LGBTQ Youth
Clinical Work with LGBTQ Youth featuring Mayte Redcay, LCSW
LGBT youth have higher rates of mental health issues, substance abuse issues, involvement in the child welfare & criminal justice system and represent half of the homeless unaccompanied youth population in some cities. This webinar utilizes a framework of Minority Stress Theory and Attachment-Based Family Therapy and will discuss incorporating this framework into clinical practice. Participants will begin to understand the origins of negative outcomes, preventative strategies, suicide prevention, LGBT terminology, and provide local and national resources. We will discuss real case examples but please bring your own.
