    The presentation will focus on addressing the importance of providing tailored, culturally competent, LGBTQ+ affirmative psychological interventions to LGBTQ individuals. We will cover how the impact of perceived heterosexist bias, homophobia, and therapists’ general lack of understanding and/or adequate training of gender and sexual diversity may result in distrust and/or avoidance of medical or mental health services. The lecture will provide healthcare providers with a deeper understanding of the significance of LGBTQ affirmative care and equip them with strategies and practical tips for delivering culturally competent and respectful care to all patients, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The goal is to empower healthcare providers to make positive changes in their approach to LGBTQ patient care.
