Intersectional Approaches to Social Work with LGBTQIA Individuals and Communities

Course Number: 

Issues that impact lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) individuals and communities are not always solely based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. This course covers basic knowledge related to LGBTQIA populations and uses an intersectional, social justice, & social ecological approach to individual, group, community, policy, and administrative practice. Emphasis is placed on analyzing power and privilege; recognizing societal trauma; centering healing justice; and the intersection of LGBTQIA identities with race, gender, ability, class, age, and immigration status.
This course fulfills the Human Diversity Requirement.
