Sex Positive Approach to LGBTQ Health
Instructor: Nhakia Outland, MSW
The spirit of trauma-informed care (TIC) has taken hold in human services agencies, and implementation of TIC is an ongoing process. Supervisors become the conduit for organizations to transmit a trauma informed culture from administrators to clinicians and their clients “on-the-ground.”
This course will utilize a combination of lecture and group discussion to assist participants with moving beyond the pathology-based model to a sex positive model when discussing sexual health with LGBTQ communities. Using a “sex positive” approach to LGBTQ health can help remove stigma and shame from sexual choices. It is crucial to have a deep understanding of your own bias and take a step away from the assumption that all LGBTQ people are engaging in “risky sex” to start a conversation that can promote healthy outcomes. This course prepares participants to discuss sex and sexuality with LGBTQ communities.
