Providing Affirming Mental Health Care for LGBTQ+ Youth
LGBTQ+ youth experience significant mental health disparities relative to their heterosexual and cisgender peers. However, evidence-based interventions designed to address these disparities are lacking. In this webinar, we will discuss strategies for addressing the mental health needs of LGBTQ+ youth, from creating a more welcoming clinical environment to adapting existing evidence-based treatment to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ youth, with a focus on transgender and gender-diverse youth and their families.
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1. Summarize the major mental health disparities experienced by LGBTQ+ youth and the contributing role of minority stress.
2. List practical steps that can be taken to create a welcoming clinical environment for LGBTQ+ youth and their families.
3. Explain the use of a case-formulation approach for addressing mental health concerns experienced by gender-diverse youth that integrates cognitive-behavioral interventions with a minority stress framework.
