Beyond Knowledge and Awareness: Promoting Skill Development for LGBQ Competency
Although advancements have been made in facilitating counselor awareness and knowledge in working with the LGBQ population, counselors identify skills as the competency they are most lacking. This leaves counselor educators with the task of improving skills-training for future counselors. Presenters will discuss and demonstrate techniques for working with the LGBQ population that may be infused into the counselor education curriculum. Delivery methods include brief didactic presentation, experiential exercises, and resources describing skill development activities.
