Ethical Considerations when working with the LGBTQIA2S+ Community
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

Event Description

In this presentation, attendees will explore ethics related to specific working areas with individuals who identify or align with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Working with LGBTQIA2S+ clients and their families requires practitioners to know multiple ethical codes, legal considerations, and cultural competency standards. Practitioners address issues pertinent to clients, such as homophobia, transphobia, discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation, religious and spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, self-acceptance, and safety. This presentation will cover applicable codes and cultural competence standards, definitions of gender, gender identity, sex, sexuality, affirmative language use, confidentiality, boundaries, and best practices in ethical decision-making.‚Äč
