Gender and Sexual Diversity Course

This two day course is designed to help participants develop cultural proficiency in working with gender and sexually diverse (GSD) clients and communities.  Participants will explore epidemiological data from Dallas County, Texas, and beyond in order to become familiar with GSD populations in most need of public health and social service interventions.  Participants will explore the complexities of sexual orientation and gender identity as they are experienced in the lives of their GSD clients.  The course will also examine the impact of stigma and discrimination on GSD populations, and strategies for creating safer spaces in our agencies for these clients. In addition, participants will also share information about trends observed with HIV and related diseases, mental health, and substance use among GSD populations, and discuss linkages to care.  Finally, participants will have an opportunity to practice delivering culturally competent interventions by participating in role-plays and discussing case studies.

It is assumed that those who register for this course have basic knowledge of gender and sexually diverse populations, such as definitions related to sexual orientation and gender identity. It is also assumed participants will have basic skills related to counseling, such as the application of Motivational Interviewing or similar client-centered interventions.

Please note that this content will cover a variety of sexually related content. Your decision to attend should be based on training needs relevant to your field of work.

Excellent content. While I don't feel the "female trainer" imposed her views on us, I do feel she could have done a better job managing her understandably strong emotions around the content, and could have made more space for opinions on the content that weren't as well-developed as hers.

The female trainers had very strong opinions and imposed their views on us in the training. The information was very good however.

The information was a good overview of Gender and Sexual Diversity. It was quite a bit of information to take in. The training should be developed into topics.

A 2 day course with CEUs provided would have been even more helpful--It is a huge topic area to cover in one day
