Presented by Kynetta Sugar McFarlane, PsyD

******************************************************************************
All individuals exist in a cultural context, and as clinicians we need to be able to understand how to recognize and address those various cultures in treatment. Unfortunately, the culture of poverty is frequently not addressed. This training will explore the culture of poverty experientially. Clinicians will examine the hidden rules among classes, the differences between generational and situational poverty, and how these factors can shift and inform the therapeutic relationship. Finally, we’ll identify therapeutic methods to apply this knowledge with our clients.


Supporting LGBTQIA+ Youth
March 8, 2022 | Register Here
8:30 am – 4:00 pm (6 CEUs)
Presented by Kynetta Sugar McFarlane, PsyD

******************************************************************************
Sexual minority or queer youth are coming out at earlier ages, in part attributed to the higher visibility of LGBT people in everyday life, the media, and greater access to information about sexual minorities. Unfortunately, youth who identify as LGBT have higher risk factors for suicidality, substance abuse, bullying, and homelessness. Due to these increased risk factors, clinicians need to be able to understand and provide support to LGBT youth and their families. This training will begin by introducing the concept of queer theory and exploring how privilege and prejudice effect queer youth. Participants will learn current terminology while exploring LGBTQ history and the developmental processes of queer youth. Case examples, clinical tools, and resources will be reviewed. After the break, we’ll focus on how to create an affirming therapeutic environment and review The Family Acceptance Project, which is an evidence-based intervention that focuses on reducing family rejection. We will also explore ways to assist LGBT youth at school and review current federal and state rights and laws related to LGBT people.
