In partnership with Nemeth Counseling and Consultation, we invite you to attend our free Continuing Education Course on January 17.

The training will consist of a two hour and forty five minute presentation and a fifteen-minute discussion post presentation. The presentation begins with an in-depth LGBTQ+ 101 series of information. This information includes specifics related to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and various queer identities. The remainder of the presentation is information regarding clinical practice implications for LGBTQ+ youth, adults and couples.
