Welcome to an overview of CEU By Net's online continuing education courses focused upon affirmation and professional support of LGBTQ children, adolescents, and their families.  Understand the trauma to which LGBTQ youth are subjected in schools, in the family, living on the street as victims of human sex trafficking, and in the unethical practice of Conversion Therapy. 


Ending Conversion Therapy and Sex Trafficking of LGBTQ Youth

In the LGBTQ Course Catalog, we offer five research-based continuing education courses which focus on constructive therapeutic intervention with LGBTQ youth within the school and family, in homeless shelters, in Mental Health and Addiction programs, and with those who need support to escape from a life controlled by the perpetrators of human trafficking.  

Our courses on this topic provide valuable insight and clinical guidance to Mental Health and Addiction Professionals who work with LGBTQ youth and their families, including School Counselors and Community Service Workers who encounter homeless, sexually trafficked LGBTQ children and adolescents living on the street.  The coursework includes content for training of parents, school employees, and community businesses in recognizing and intervening in abuse, bullying, and sex trafficking of LGBTQ children and adolescents.



The courses, briefly described below, award CEUs, PDHs and Credit Hours which are approved and/or accepted by NBCC, EACC-EAPA, California BBS, California CCAPP, CCADE, and CADTP, Florida CE Broker and FCB, TxCBAP-TAAP, NAADAC, IC&RC, and most State Boards based upon these approvals.   

You can read a detailed description of these courses in the LGBTQ Course Catalog, including the goals of each course and the number of CE Credits approved by various certification boards.

Course 8T 'Human Trafficking of Adolescents in America' is a research-based study of how children and adolescents become sexually trafficked throughout the USA, and how mental health and addiction professionals can help them to learn ways to remain safe and to ultimately escape from human trafficking perpetrators.  Many of these trafficked youth are LGBTQ adolescents who have been forced to live on the street due to family rejection and abuse.  


Course 5P-A 'Preventing Suicide - Tool Kit for High Schools' presents a comprehensive Risk Management and culturally sensitive approach to preventing primary suicides of students in High Schools as well as a postvention approach to preventing 'copy cat' or 'contagion' suicides in the surviving student population.  LGBTQ adolescents are particularly vulnerable to suicide, and this course includes specific guidelines for teaching awareness of this risk to teachers, school administrators, and parents of LGBTQ youth.  


Course 6J 'Ending Conversion Therapy with LGBTQ Youth' is a research-based approach to supporting and affirming gay, transsexual, bisexual, and questioning youth to make a healthy transition to adulthood.  There is also clear guidance in helping resistant parents who oppose their child's sexual identity to develop a positive relationship despite misgivings.  This is a sea-change publication which has served as the impetus for all national medical, mental health, and addiction treatment organizations to join in the mandate to end Conversion Therapy.  


Course 5J 'Suicide Risk and Prevention for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth' focuses upon the family dynamics which oftentimes result in homelessness, sexual trafficking, and suicide of LGBTQ Youth.  Approaches to identifying all of these adverse conditions are addressed, as well as collaborative approaches to supporting children and adolescents who are so affected, within the community.   

Course 3J 'Professional Guide to Supporting LGBTQI2-S Children and Adolescents,' focuses upon the community-oriented support of LGBTQI2-S children and adolescents.  This course is appropriate for social workers, mental health and addiction counselors, MFTs and CEAPs who work with LGBTQI2-S youth and their families, and with community service organizations serving these youth including schools, child protection and welfare agencies, community centers of various types, and health care providers.
