Ethical and Affirming Social Work Practice with the LGBTQIAP Community and their Family Members

Learning how to deliver ethical, evidence-based social work practice is imperative for assisting clients who identify as LGBTQIAP. Ethical practice approaches allow practitioners to foster growth in a manner that is safe for these vulnerable clients who are too familiar with oppression, discrimination, violence, suicide, isolation and rejection. Our presenter will help increase your understanding of ethical practices regarding therapeutic approaches, controversial versus ethically appropriate terminology and ethically appropriate clinical recommendations and referrals.

  • Increase knowledge of the relevant NASW Code of Ethics as applicable to social work practice with the LGBTQIAP community
  • Increase awareness of impact that unethical practices have on the health and well-being of the LGBTQIAP community and their family member
  • Increase knowledge about ethical, evidence-based clinical and general practices for work with the LGBTQIAP community and their family members.
