    This presentation will address the consistent and emerging mental health disparities faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) youth and young adults. Participants will learn the role of technology on the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth and young adults and how to integrate into practice as well as the competencies and conditions for affirmative clinical practice. Many clinicians receive little or no clinical training in supporting the needs of LGBTQ+ Youth in graduate school or beyond, and this unique training offers the specific and emergent strategies to enable competent work with these populations.  Join Shelley L. Craig, Ph.D as she describes the current state of LGBTQ+ youth mental health, and the importance of affirmative practice and strategies.
