Clinical Humility and the LGBT Community: What Clinicians Need to Know to Strengthen the Therapeutic Alliance

The LGBT community is unique and diverse which requires clinicians to have a deeper knowledge of the challenges present in their work with each other. Cultural competency implies a total mastery of the LGBT community and all presenting dynamics. While this may be partially true, it removes the impetus to grow and expand clinical skill sets as well as to use the client as a guide in deepening clinical understanding. This humility must encompass everything from basic language to client engagement to advanced treatment planning. This workshop will assist in advancing the level of engagement and clinical effectiveness in strengthening outcomes for the LGBT community. 

Attended in full, this workshop fulfills cultural competency requirements for licensure renewal. All courses offered through the NASW-Illinois Chapter meet the continuing education qualifications for LSWs, LCSWs, LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, and LCPs licensed in Illinois as required by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR).
