Working with LGBTQ Clients: Cultural Competence and the BACB Ethics Code

  • The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa 101 Montelago Boulevard Henderson, NV, 89011 United States (map)

Nevada Association for Behavior Analysis Conference

Transgender and gender nonconforming identities have gained increasing visibility within recent years, and gender and sexuality both play a significant role in how social interactions are constructed for people of all identities. This workshop provides an overview of key concepts and social practices related to gender and sexuality, as well as stereotypes and barriers that LGBTQ individuals face both generally and when interacting with helping professionals specifically. Attendees will explore specific strategies that behavior analysts and other helping professionals can employ to promote LGBTQ-affirming interactions with clients, their family members, staff, and others, as well as relevant BACB ethics codes that call for the development of LGBTQ cultural competence. Empirically supported literature and data will be presented where applicable and available, and questions and discussion will be welcomed throughout the workshop. Clinical scenarios and other active response opportunities will be provided.
