Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community present to treatment with a great deal of challenges and strengths that have informed their experience. Participants of this workshop will increase their cultural competency in working with members of this community by learning more about identity development, resiliency as well as the discrimination and oppression that members of this community often face.
