This webinar on Evidence-Based Psychotherapy with LGBTQ+ Populations is presented by Kimberly F. Balsam, PhD
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 clinicians to adapt their approach and provide affirmative, evidence-based psychotherapy for LGBTQ+ clients. Clinical examples and suggestions for incorporating clinician self-awareness and identities will be included.
