November 10, 2015 & April 10, 2015 - Reducing Sexual and Gender Identity Microaggressions in Mental Health Counseling


Jeff Peterson presented on sexual and gender microaggressions at the Colorado Counseling Association 2015 Conference and for the Kansas City Behavioral Health Professionals lunch and learn.  In this workshop, attendees learned how to advocate for reducing sexual and gender microaggressions and learned to demonstrate how such microaggresions act as a significant deterrent for LGBT individuals seeking healthcare.  Participants will develop skills for instructing healthcare administrators, providers, and policy makers on critically reflecting their own social ecological layers of identity.  Attendees learned how to demonstrate practical ways for reducing or eliminating sexual and gender identity microaggressions in healthcare settings.  This interactive roundtable workshop begins by defining appropriate terminology for addressing issues pertinent to sexual and gender minorities.

September 19, 2013 - Banning Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (Conversion Therapy) as a Public Health Intervention


Background:  Nearly every major medical association, including the: American Psychological Association, American Medical Association, American Counseling Association, American Psychiatric Association, National Association of Social Workers, American Academy of Pediatrics have cautioned against the use of Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE) primarily because: a) such treatments do not have adequate scientific evidence demonstrating their effectiveness, b) overlook established scientific understanding of human sexuality, c) mischaracterizes homosexuality as being a pathological or developmental disorder, and d) are more likely to cause harm due to the distress associated with self-rejection and social stigmatization.  The American Psychological Association assigned a task force to assess the effectiveness of SOCE and released a report in 2009 titled, Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation.  The report suggested that practitioners should accept and support clients dealing with struggles surrounding their sexual orientation.  This includes a clinical focus on identity development and exploration, active coping skills development, and enhanced social support building, without directing the client towards a specific sexual orientation identity outcome.  There has been a recent resurgence of the use of SOCE and despite mounting evidence, ethical codes against its use have been slow to develop and licensing boards have been hands off in addressing the use of such treatment practices.  Some have argued that this demonstrates an entrenched socialized prejudice requiring social justice intervention; hence the recent introduction of legislation banning the use of conversion therapy in minors. 


Mark Thrun is the Director for the STD/HIV Prevention and Control program at Denver Public Health; an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School Of Medicine; and the Director of the Denver STD/HIV Prevention Training Center.

Learning Objectives:

1) Describe the current peer-reviewed evidence, including risks, regarding the use of SOCE

2) Describe the role of advocacy and social justice in addressing socio-historic prejudice

3) Discuss the social vulnerabilities of a stigmatized population and the impact on healthcare outcome

August 12, 2012 - The Importance of Accepting Your LGBT Family Member or Friend: How to Overcome the Shackles of Judgment and Shame


Judgment is a prime conveyance of shame and a significant amount of research points to the devastating effects that shame has on self-concept.  LGBT Individuals who are accepted without judgment by their primary support network are less likely to fall into the self-harming traps that are catalyzed by shame.  Together we will explore the various levels of judgment that affect LGBT individuals and discuss how we as individuals might better overcome those constraints.

February 17, 2012 - Mental Health Disparities Impacting the LGBT Community (LGBT Healthcare Roundtable - Missouri State Capitol)


LGBT individuals face a number of secondary healthcare risks such as an increased risk for depression, anxiety or suicide due to social stigmatization.  But some of the most significant disparities may be in response to heterosexist microaggressions.  Sexual microaggressions are subtle negative attitudes about an individual’s LGBT gender or sexual identity.  These attitudes could create a chilling effect, where LGBT individuals may be less likely to seek out healthcare in fear of stigmatization.  As a result, sexual minorities may be at risk for diminished access to healthcare, resulting in missed screening, late intervention, and overall poorer health outcomes.
