Description

There are more people with ADHD and autism in the queer community than in the general population. Therefore, understanding this intersection of queer and neurodivergent identity is vital to counseling LGBTGEQIAP+ clients. Unfortunately, current clinical norms pathologize neurodivergence and discourage authenticity. This presentation seeks to give therapists the skills to work effectively with queer neurodivergent clients from the perspective of queer neurodivergent therapists.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this workshop is to increase understanding of neurodivergent affirming therapy.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define neurodivergent affirming therapy.

  • Articulate at least three parallels between neurodivergent and queer affirming practice.

  • Identify two or more strategies that can be implemented in practice to affirm queer neurodivergent clients.
