    AFFIRM: Affirmative Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) Populations is an advanced, three-day training on the science and practice of applying Affirmative Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with LGBTQ+ populations. Participants will receive information about the context for affirmative and strengths-based models of practice, will learn about broad applications of CBT in general and AFFIRM in particular, and will also have an opportunity to practice AFFIRM. Many clinicians receive little or no training in supporting the needs of LGBTQ+ Youth in graduate school or beyond, and this unique training offers the depth needed to work competently with this population.
