FAMCD, 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.
