Networking and sign in will be from 1130-12 and presentations will run from 12-1. Thanks to our wonderful partnership with St. Leo University, lunch will be provided!
Patrick Mooney and the rest of the representatives from the college counseling programs in the area are hard at work developing a quality program for CSWA-S members.
The topic will be, LGBTQ – U: Contemporary Gender Related Issues in Area Colleges. Please read below for additional information and learning objectives.
As colleges throughout the region and the nation address the needs of an increasingly diverse student population, issues related to gender are increasing in number and complexity. Mental health clinicians in colleges and the surrounding communities need to know about the issues that have an impact on their clients and they need to know about available resources in order to effectively work with gender non-traditional students.
This presentation and panel discussion features people from area colleges and universities who will speak from the unique perspective of each of their very different college campuses. They will;
· identify issues affecting the LGBTQ community
· identify problems that they see and discuss how they are addressing them
· describe resources that are available.
The panel discussion will allow mental health clinicians at colleges and in the community to discuss this topic and share information so that these students may be better served.
Participants will have the opportunity to become aware of and be able to identify issues that have an impact on the LGBTQ community on area college campuses.
Participants will have the opportunity to become aware of and be able to identify resources that are available to help address some of the individual, group, and systemic problems that exist.
Participants will have the opportunity to develop connections with resources in the community and on campus in order to better serve their student/clients.
