Event Description

For some straight-identifying family service workers, working with LGBTQ families can be a bit precarious. You may not know exactly what to ask or suggest, for fear of saying the wrong thing and alienating the potential parents/clients. In this workshop, you'll learn more about LGBTQ culture, potential hidden biases, and practical ways to create more aligned relationships with your clients. There will be some didactic information, but be prepared to dialogue, ask questions, and be involved. 

The workshop is presented by Mike Giordano, LICSW (a return presenter for Barker) who has over 20 years of experience educating professionals on LGBTQ experiences. He is also in private practice and an adoptive father himself. 

Three CAT I CEU’s will be offered.
