LGBT Affirming Practice
Thurs | March 31 | 7-9pm EST | Denise Acros, LMSW
Denisse Across Platt, LMSW - This is an introductory level course in LGBTQ competency. The student will learn basic terms, including language to avoid as well as the differences and correlation between gender identity and sexual orientation. The course will provide a deeper understanding of gender identity, not just focusing on transgender individuals, but also exploring the gender binary and its societal implications. An overview of LGBTQ history and social movements will be presented and tied into the current struggles that the LGBTQ community continues to face today. The student will be able to apply these teachings to their daily practice and physical space to provide an affirming environment for this population. Presented: Denisse Arcos-Pratt is a therapist in the only LGBTQ-specific group home program in New York City, where she has worked for several years. As this role lands on many systemic intersections, Denisse has been able to develop a wide range of knowledge on the child welfare system in NYC, transgender-related healthcare processes, and housing and education advocacy. While doing this work, Denisse has continued her education and experience by participating in and presenting in TGNC specific programs and professional conferences.
