Description
This introductory workshop provides an in-depth exploration of the three-pillar model of positive psychology (character strengths, subjective experiences, and positive social institutions) and its application to work with sexual and gender minority clients. The interactive discussion focuses on theory and empirical literature in psychology relevant to these strengths in LGBT individuals and their role in creating resilient clients. Real-world illustrations and interactive activities are provided to help participants create LGBT-affirming, positive practices through specific administrative and clinical practices that recognize, build, and celebrate these strengths.
Learning Objectives
1. List the most common LGBT signature strengths found in the psychology literature.
2. Correctly identify examples of each of the specific strengths in case examples and/or clips.
3. Describe the relationship between minority stress, strengths, resilience, and positive psychological outcomes.
4. Create a specific plan to become more of a positive social institution for LGBT individuals.
