Certificate in LGBT-Affirmative Psychology

 **LGBT CERTIFICATE PROGRAM RE-OPENING IN JANUARY 2017**

The LGBT Certificate program is a post-MA training experience for licensed and license-eligible clinicians (MFTs, LPCCs, LCSWs, psychologists, etc.) who are interested in gaining specific training in working with LGTQI individuals.

The LGBT Certificate program is a four-quarter, 1-year program. Students in the program will be required to complete four half-time quarters (4 units) in order to receive the certificate. Students can enter at the beginning of any of our existing quarters (January, April, July, or October).

Each quarter will consist of one existing, three-unit course that is a core course for the LGBT Specialization. LGBT Certification students will take four of the five required courses from the specialization.

  1. LGBT History and Myth (3 units)
  2. LGBT Psychological Issues across the lifespan (3 units)
  3. Multicultural Mental Health (course undergoing name change; 3 units)
  4. LGBT Affirmative Therapy (3 units)

In addition to one 3 unit class, students in the certificate program will enroll in one unit of a supervision/consultation class for the certificate students. The current iteration of the certificate program has this class, and it will be revised to reflect this unit shift.

LGBT certificate students will have their own specific supervision and consultation class (info coming soon) which will be an online course that allows them specific time to gain a unique experience which differentiates them from LGBT students.
