"Promoting Counselor Skill Development for LGBTQ Competency"

Presented by: Rebekah Byrd, Ph.D., LPC, NCC, RPT
Assistant Professor of Counseling

School Counseling Program Coordinator

Department of Counseling and Human Services
East Tennessee State University

Abstract: Although advancements have been made in facilitating counselor awareness and knowledge in working with the LGBTQ population, counselors identify skills as the competency they are most lacking. This leaves counselor educators with the important task of improving skills-training for future counselors.

The presenter will discuss and demonstrate specific techniques for working with the LGBTQ population that may be infused into the counselor education curriculum. Delivery methods include didactic presentation, experiential exercises, and resources describing skill development activities.

Join us on Tuesday, November 4 at 2:00 pm EST (1:00 pm CST; 12:00 pm MST; 11:00 am PST) for this free and informational webinar.

Early Treatment, Counseling May Stop Schizophrenia Before It Starts

Typically, a first psychotic break occurs in a person's late teens or early 20s. In men, the range is 15 to 24; in women, 25 to 34. That first psychotic break can lead to a series of disasters: social isolation, hospitalization, medications with sometimes disabling side effects, and future psychotic episodes.
