March 22, 2017 – LGBT Youth and Suicide

by Joann on January 31, 2017

Workshop Description

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) youth are perhaps one of the most vulnerable populations in the United States today. Aside from the typical developmental hurdles of adolescence, LGBT youth often face such psychosocial challenges as isolation, stigma, familial and societal rejection as well as physical, emotional, and sexual violence. Fueled by various forms of oppression, LGBT youth often feel there is nowhere to turn for support or guidance.  In a culture where difference often breeds discrimination, suicide is sometimes seen as a viable option for these youths. This workshop will explore the varying societal levels of response to LGBT youth and the responsibility that human service professionals must play to advocate on behalf of this population.

Goals & Objectives

At the end the training, participants will:

Goal 1) Increase their knowledge base of sexual orientation;

Objective 1) Identify the difference between Orientation, Behavior, and Identity.

Goal 2) Increase their knowledge based of gender identity development;

Objective 2) Identify the difference between Core Gender, Gender Role, and Gender Identity.

Goal 3) Increase their awareness of personal and professional values about LGBT youth;

Objective 3) Identify and describe at least one personal and one professional value about working with LGBT youth.

SUMMARY:

Depression in older adults not only causes distress and suffering but also leads to impairments in physical, mental, and social functioning. Despite being associated with excess morbidity and mortality, depression often goes undiagnosed and untreated. The startling reality is that a substantial proportion of older patients receive no treatment or inadequate treatment for their depression in primary care settings, according to expert consensus (NIH Consensus Development Panel on Depression in Late Life, 1992; Lebowitz et al., 1997).

Cognitive behavioral therapy is both a skills-based intervention designed to increase efficacy of coping ability, and a depth therapeutic approach that can quickly clarify long held beliefs (schemata) and assumptions about self, world and future that are at the core of many depressed individuals’ thinking.  This workshop will focus on teaching the basics of CBT as applied to older adults, and will provide participants with an opportunity to practice those skills in case scenarios.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss the basics of cognitive behavioral therapy as applied to older adults.
  • List the health risks of depression in the elderly.
  • Articulate some of the core beliefs that underlie depression in the elderly.
  • Describe a method for engaging older adults in treatment.
  • Describe and practice modified cognitive behavioral techniques that are practical and effective with the elderly.
