Course 6J  Ending Conversion Therapy with LGBTQ Youth

This course material represents a critical 'sea change' in the understanding of GENDER, specifically as it pertains to LGBTQ children and adolescents.  

Ending Conversion Therapy for LGBTQ YouthThis course, written and published by SAMHSA and sponsored for Continuing Education credit by CEU By Net, takes an in-depth look at the developmental process of gender identity and sexual orientation in LGBTQ youth, from age two forward.

This course provides mental health and addiction professionals with accurate information about effective and ineffective therapeutic practices and supportive interaction as it pertains sexual orientation and gender identity in youth.  

  • One of the goals of the course is to gain a clear understanding of the difference between GENDER vs. Sex Assigned at Birth, and how the differentiation evolves in transgender children and adolescents. This course presents a sensitive discussion of the various trajectories that a TRANSGENDER identity in very young children may take when they are allowed to explore their gender identity during childhood and adolescence.

  • The course also clearly describes the difference between Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression in children, adolescents, and young adults, and the possible blending of these gender attributes.  

The conclusion of the expert panel who developed the information in this course is that variations in each of these three elements of identity are within the NORMAL SPECTRUM of sexual expression and gender identity in humans.

  • This groundbreaking report by SAMHSA and a host of recognized experts in the mental health and addiction field confronts in a forthright manner the issue of CONVERSION THERAPY for minors.

  • Conversion Therapy - the effort to change an individual’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression - is a practice that is not supported by credible evidence and has been disavowed by behavioral health experts and multiple professional associations, including the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association, and the National Association of Social Workers. 

  • Mental health and addiction professionals should find this course very helpful in working with the parents of LGBTQ children and adolescents. The goal is to understand the inherent basis for LGBTQ identity and the developmental process from childhood to adulthood ….. and to help parents form a healthy relationship with their LGBTQ child or adolescent despite difficulty accepting the youth's LGBTQ status.
