Intersectionality and the Challenges of Working with LGBTQ Clients
Presenter: Suzanne Iasenza, Ph.D

The presenter will present the challenges therapists often encounter working with LGBTQ clients, both personally and professionally. These include understanding the multi-dimensionality and fluidity of sexual orientation and gender; the differences between gender identity, sex role identity and sexual orientation; and how gender orientation and gender expression intersect with race, ethnicity, class and religion.
We will discuss how the therapist’s own homophobia, heterosexism, biphobia or transphobia may manifest in the therapeutic process.
