Training the Trainer: Teaching Basic Helping Skills for LGBTQ+-Affirmative Practices


Mar 31, 2019 10:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 12:00pm

Description

Despite the best efforts of school personnel, students who identify as LGBTQ+ experience lower self-esteem, lower GPAs, and lower career expectations than their heterosexual/cisgender peers. The presenters developed and delivered a workshop to teach basic helping skills to undergraduate student teachers and school administration students, and the workshop significantly increased their affirmative practice beliefs. Implications for counselors, supervisors, and counselor educators will be provided.

  • To highlight the need for increased affirmative practices in schools and the community toward individuals who identify as LGBTQ+.
  • To explain a training program that was found to increase the affirmative beliefs and practices of student teachers and school administration students.
  • To explore ways in which counselors, counselor educators, and supervisors can teach basic helping skills to students and community members in order to increase LGBTQ+-affirmative practices.
