Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Considerations for LGBTQ+ Youth and Their Caregivers by Kelly Wilson, LCSW


May 16, 2023
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Live Online Interactive Presentation
Description: LGBTQ+ youth are at elevated risk for experiencing additional traumas that are specifically or in part related to their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression (SOGIE). This workshop will examine the integration of the Family Acceptance Project’s (FAP) Family Support Model into Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to better meet the needs of LGBTQ+ youth and families. We will identify ways to implement the phases and components of the model through strengths-based, resiliency-building approaches with an emphasis on enhancing the caregiver’s potential to be sources of support for the youth.
