Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and other sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ+) people have unique risk and resilience factors that influence their mental health and response to psychotherapy. This webinar draws upon the growing body of psychological research with this population to provide a framework for clinical psychologists to adapt their approach and provide affirmative, evidence-based psychotherapy for LGBTQ+ clients. Clinical examples and suggestions for addressing the clinician’s own biases are included.
