CNS 3020 - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues in Counseling

(4)
The purpose of this course is to enhance students’ multicultural competence by introducing students to major issues associated with sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, and how these issues historically and currently are addressed in the counseling and psychological literature. Issues addressed include mental and physical health, identity development and the coming out process across the lifespan, psychosocial consequences of internalized homonegativity and heterosexism, family and relationship issues, spirituality, affirmative counseling, and professional ethics when working with LGBTQ clients. Mental health issues associated with LGBTQ individuals’ intersecting identities are also examined (i.e., race, ethnicity, gender, social status, ability etc.). (Formerly CNS 310)
