Cultural Competency: An Introduction to Working with LGBT Populations

Flynn O'Malley, PhD

Rose Yang, PsyD

Lenni Marcus, LMSW

Over the past several decades, there have been significant changes in our understanding of the LGBTQ population. Members of this community have long suffered a history of judgment and discrimination, thereby propagating further misconceptions.


This talk and discussion will focus on our current understanding of sexual orientation and gender variance, as well as how healthcare professionals can provide the highest quality of care to those in our community. We will look at the skills and competencies to effectively work with individuals, as well as examine how our own values and beliefs affect the quality of care that we give.


At the conclusion of this event, participants should be able to:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the variations in the range of gender variance and sexuality.
  • Introduce skills and competencies for staff to effectively work with individuals with diverse gender identities and sexualities.
