Signaling Safety for LGBTQ clients:
Ethics, Suicide Prevention and cultural competency

LGBTQ individuals are at an elevated risk of experiencing suicidality and suicide, and there is a need for treatment modalities that can address the unique needs of this community when providing treatment.

It will provide updated information on recent research regarding the issues and evidence based care, as well as how standard practices can be modified to meet the unique needs of this population.
