LGBTQ and Conflicting Religious Values
Presenter: Shimmy Feintuch, LCSW CASAC-G
These workshops offer 3 Continuing Education Credits
This webinar is recorded and will not grant live credits.
Multiple issues may arise when traditional religious values and LGBTQ+ clients intersect. Clients who inhabit both of these identities experience not only internal value conflicts, but also conflicting community and societal pressures from their religious and sexual identities.
The first part of this course will explore both sides of this dialectic, informing a culturally competent approach to each individual identity before moving toward multiple approaches to a synthesis of these seemingly conflicting identities.
When clinicians with traditional religious values treat LGBTQ+ clients (religious or not), clinicians may struggle to formulate a treatment that empowers clients yet matches the clinicians’ values. The second part of this course will explore and develop the idea of true LGBTQ+ cultural competence as a gateway to merging affirmative treatment with the clinicians’ traditional value systems.
