Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity
July 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This training reviews terms, definitions, and concepts related to sexual orientation, sexuality, gender identity, and gender expression. Using lecture, discussion, and experiential activities, the facilitator(s) will guide participants into a deeper awareness of their cultural conditioning around sexuality and gender to enhance culturally-responsible approaches to care. This training introduces participants to ways they can develop their skills around using inclusive and affirming language, especially when working with transgender and non-binary clients. The overall goal of the training is to improve participants’ ability to provide high-quality, client-centered care for people of all genders and sexualities.
- Differentiate the categories of sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
- Demonstrate at least 2 affirming ways to discuss sexual orientation and gender identity with your client.
- Apply the concept of client-centered care to support the importance of using respectful and inclusive language with your clients in discussing sexual orientation and gender identity.
