LGBTI people have significantly poorer mental health and higher rates of suicide than other Australians.
Thankfully, many of them are stepping forward to seek help. If you are a health care worker who would like to be more comfortable working with individuals from the LGBTI community and get a better understanding about specific trauma's these individuals face, this course is for you.
Asa Clarke will explore the difference between sex, sexuality, gender, and intersex status. They will also talk about the unique intersection between LGBTI presentations and trauma (including complex trauma and PTSD), and how to help LGBTI people who present with trauma in a therapeutic setting.
