EQUALITY CARE TRAINING

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) people have always made up about 5% of the population, but their needs often haven’t been understood or met.  NYS OMH, NYSOFA, JCAHO, and other agencies now require providers to engage clients in conversations about their sexual orientation and gender identity, record the data in client records, and respond in a supportive and affirming way.  We’re here to help you and your staff learn how to do that. The Equality Care Training was made possible by the generous support of the Johnson Family Foundation, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the New York City Council.

  • This training is intended for audiences who have already received basic LGBTQ cultural competence training.

  • Building on a quick review of core concepts, providers will learn about how to start and continue conversations about sexual orientation and gender identity;

  • Recommended language to address these issues on intake forms and in interviews;

  • How to work with complex issues like internalized self hatred and ambivalence;

  • How to support clients in making choices about coming out; and how to address these issues with young people and elders.

  • The presentation includes video and interactive exercises.​
