This course supports providers in deepening their understanding of gender and sexual identities with an emphasis on creating inclusive spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth who have dual diagnoses and/or intellectual disabilities. Providers will discuss misconceptions and best practices related to diagnosis and social support for LGBTQ youth with intellectual disabilities, learning differences, mental health and/or substance use diagnoses. Through reviewing research, group discussion, multimedia, and self-reflection, individuals will become familiar with the most up-to-date terms, frameworks for understanding sexuality & gender and best practices.
