Affirming LGBT Lived Experience in CBT

This training will be held as a live 3-hour webinar.

This 3-hour webinar will focus on the why and how in applying Affirmative CBT to LGBTQ clients. With her extensive experience working with individuals under the LGBTQ umbrella, Kathrine Bakke-Friedland, PhD, will illustrate the importance of communicating a strong affirmative stance when addressing the unique needs of this population.

Being part of a minority group poses increased risk of discrimination and stigmatization. Identity development and how individuals view themselves is greatly influenced by environmental, cultural, and religious experiences. Unfortunately, overt and covert homophobia and transphobia continue to be commonplace, thus leaving LGBTQ individuals vulnerable to develop negative core beliefs and mental health challenges.

The minority stress model is presented to deepen the understanding of LGBTQ experiences and to help develop a more accurate and comprehensive case conceptualization.

CBT, with its focus on collaboration, respect, and curious investigation of thoughts and assumptions, is uniquely suited to alter and improve the lives of many LGBTQ individuals.

The webinar will include several case examples and video segments illustrating essential elements of Affirmative CBT.

This training will be held as a live 3-hour webinar over Zoom. Please download the latest version of Zoom Client for Meetings and view the technical requirements prior to the webinar.

Please note that the webinar will not be recorded.
