Defines affirmative therapy, addresses a brief cultural competency

In this assignment, you will generate a PowerPoint presentation that defines affirmative therapy, addresses a brief cultural competency of LGBTQ+ experiences, identifies the role of intersectionality in the lives of LGBTQ individuals, couples, and families, and reflects on group therapy elements in working with LGBTQ populations specifically.
For your PowerPoint presentation, imagine that you are working in a community services agency that has identified one of their primary training goals is to educate all mental health workers on LGBTQ+ cultural competencies and affirmative therapy with LGBTQ+ populations. The agency expects that affirmative therapy will be utilized in working with LGBTQ clients. The administration has enlisted you to help educate the staff around affirmative therapy as well as provide background on LGBTQ populations.
Be sure to address the following in your presentation:

Provide a background on possible unique experiences that LGBTQ persons may bring to therapy.
Educate your audience on LGBTQ+ populations (consider what you think would be most important for them to know).
Include a discussion on intersectionality.
Define and discuss the Affirmative Therapy approach in working with LGBTQ persons.
Include definitions to help the audience better understand Affirmative Therapies (e.g., heteronormativity, homophobia).
Discuss tools that you feel clinicians can include in their practice that would embrace the affirmative stance.
Provide a slide that considers group therapy (strengths and limitations of group therapy) when working with LGBTQ+ communities.

General APA Writing Tips

All academic papers must be formatted on standard-sized paper and double-spaced typed. Here, the standard-sized paper is 8.5″ x 11″, with 1 margins on all four sides. Also, Times New Roman (12pt.) is the recommended font type and size as it is visible and highly readable. The structure of the paper must comprise the title page, abstract, main body, and references page. However, some universities may not require an abstract.


The formatting of the title page is crucial, especially with the changes incorporated in APA Style 7th Edition: it must include the assignment title, student name, name of the institution, course name, instructor name, and assignment due date. No running head is required. In the abstract section, keywords should be indented inch. At least 3 keywords should be provided if required for the paper. The reference page should come last and be written (bold and centered) at the top of a new page. All references must be put alphabetically under the References labeled title. Also, a hanging indent must be applied to the reference list such that the first line of the reference is aligned to the left, and all other lines get indented 0.5 inches.
