Adolescents are a vulnerable group in our population for statistics of suicidal behavior. However, in comparative terms, LGBT teens versus heterosexuals have significantly higher suicidal behavior statistics. Health professionals have an extremely important role because sometimes we are the first person to know the sexual orientation or gender identity of the adolescent. On these occasions, we have a duty to provide you with a safe space, support and advise you in handling issues of bullying, family dynamics of oppression, and issues of personal acceptance. In this workshop we will discuss practical strategies for achieving a safe environment.

CEUs are not offered for this course. A certificate of attendance will be provided.
