A Quest for Competency: Basic Concepts for Working with Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

LGBTQ+ individuals as a community are consistently underserved, and they struggle to find clinicians who are competent to work with them. This training is designed to provide basic terms and concepts to help clinicians feel more equipped with the knowledge to meet that need. Participants will be able to describe the difference between binary and non-binary identities as well as be able to identify at least three different gender identities. It will also provide an opportunity for attendees to learn experientially about nonbinary identities through the medium of psychodrama by identifying at least one area of their life that they can use to empathetically connect with the experience of a non-binary client.

James Pennington is a trauma therapist who operates their own private practice, Dream Again Therapy, in Omaha, Nebraska. They have presented at a number of local and national conferences on LGBTQ+ issues, working with trauma survivors, and how cultural issues impact the therapeutic process. They also work as a consultant to help clinicians and agencies provide more affirming care to clients with transgender and non-binary identities.
