Individual Counseling with LGBTQ Students: Ethical and Affirmative Practices (1.25 hours)
Affirmative counseling strategies can help support LGBTQ students experiencing difficulties. These strategies include supporting identity development and disclosure, and managing discrimination and homophobia.
