Sexuality and spirituality are two very large dimensions in a person's life, and often the LGBT population feel compelled or resigned to choose one or the other in their personal journey. Many LGBT clients report that they feel the paucity of training associated with issues around their status as sexual minorities. As a result of this paucity in training and the professional edict that warns counselors about the dangers of bringing spirituality into session, LGBT clients who struggle with sexual identity and spirituality face a very narrow pool of counselors who feel equipped to provide service. Learn the skills needed to help clients who struggle reconciling these two warring aspects of self. Develop strategies in training counselors to develop the skills, and learn how to developing meaningful advocacy for sexual minorities of faith.
