KPRI logo

When: Tuesday January 25, 2022
Time: 9:00am-3:00pm (includes a 1-hour lunch break)
Where: Virtual Webex Training
Joel Brecht

Who Should Attend: Anyone wishing to become more aware of issues faced by persons referred to as “sexual minorities”. This heterogeneous population also includes persons with gender identity differences.

Course Description: In this seminar we examine the effects of language, culture, and power dynamics on the developing person hood of those who carry the labels represented in LGBTQ/SOGIE. We will also examine our own biases, values and thinking, conditioned by our own upbringing, acculturation, and knowledge. Our focus will be on ways to become more truly welcoming and affirming to all persons who differ from us and learn from them how to be helpful as part of a healing community of support. There will be an emphasis on affirming service for people who are transgender.

Certificate of Attendance for all participants.

Registration is limited to 50 participants.

No cost to attend the training.

Continuing Education Credits: CEU’s will be sponsored by Southwest Behavioral Health Management and the Northwest Behavioral Health Partnership. At the time of the training you will be provided with information on how to submit for CEU’s.
