    FCA, ARCA, & NCRE Webinar Series*

    Presented by Tameeka Hunter, M.S., LPC (GA), NCC, CRC


    Webinar Overview: Persons with disabilities and sexual (i.e., bisexual, gay, lesbian, pansexual, queer, questioning, same- sex/gender attracted) and gender minority persons (e.g., transgender, genderqueer) in the United States report significantly higher rates mental and physical health disparities than their heterosexual and nondisabled counterparts. These health disparities include, psychiatric disabilities, anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, affective disorders, and suicidality. Resilience ameliorates these negative mental and physical health outcomes for sexual and gender minority persons living disabilities (Hunter, et al., 2020).


    Training Objectives:

    1. Employ ethical practices using the ACA Disability-Related Counseling Competencies when serving SGMPWDs.
    2. Identify factors that maximize resiliency of SGMPWDs and discuss ways to bolster them.
    3. Identify factors that minimize resiliency of SGMPWDS and outline ways to ameliorate those risks.

mESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Letitia Browne-James, Current FCA President

Dear FCA Members,

It is with great pride and humility that I introduce myself as your current President of the Florida Counseling Association (FCA). I am grateful to have opportunities to know and learn from many professional counselors within the (FCA) family and am looking forward to getting to know and working with you. The goals that I have for my presidency are (a) supporting and further developing FCA by increasing membership and membership involvement to serve the counselors and people in Florida, (b) supporting and mentoring new and seasoned leaders, (c) engaging in advocacy efforts within our profession and for those we serve, and (d) strengthening multicultural and ethical competencies in our work.

Florida Counseling Association is ran by skilled counseling professionals and students who volunteer their time to serve on the executive board and in other capacities within the organization. Therefore, we are always looking for individuals who would like to get involved in FCA. If that is you, please feel free to contact me at drlbjfca@gmail.com to discuss how you may get connected and serve. It is definitely a team effort to keep FCA running smoothly, and we are stronger together. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon and seeing you at an upcoming professional event.

Humbly,

Letitia Browne-James, Ph.D., LMHC-S, NCC

President 2019-2021
