Ethical and Legal Perspectives in Counseling Sexual Minority Youth in Our Schools
Presenter: Gloria Anderson, MA, LPC, NCC

School counselors, uncertain about their understanding of the needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students and the issues concerning them, will find much guidance in the related ethical codes of  their profession as well as in case law established over the past several years.


Out in the Workplace: GLBT Issues in Career Counseling
Presenter: Michael Lebeau, MEd

This presentation addressed critical workplace and job market issues related to the career planning concerns and job search struggles of gay and lesbian candidates and employees.


GLBT Issues in the Juvenile Justice System
Presenter: Donna Melder, NCC, LPC

This session examined the rise in gay and lesbian adolescents involved in juvenile courts and how counselors may be able to work with this population to curb re-offending.


Unique Challenges to Wellness in the GLBT Community
Presenters: Paul Hard, MA LPC-SC, NCC and Glenda Elliott, Ph.D., LPC-SC, NCC

This presentation reviewed the major risks and challenges experienced by GLBT individuals and families - including depression, grief and loss, substance abuse, relationship issues, and spiritual crises.
