This presentation will provide an overview of the ground-breaking Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) practice guidelines for working with sexually and gender-diverse people. Towards contextualising the rationale for the guidelines, self-awareness of participants will be developed through experiential learning methodologies. Given time constraints, the emphasis will be on sexual orientation, more than gender identity and/or expression, towards demonstrating what constitutes hetero-cis-normativity in a patriarchal society and introducing the lived experiences of lesbian, gay and to a lesser extent bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Health and well-being issues, understanding LGBT ‘vulnerabilities’/ ‘at riskness’, and related ethics will be addressed within a human rights framework.

NB: The attainment of CEUs or CPD points does not license any professional to practise outside of their scope or competency. CPD training is intended to broaden the knowledge of professionals and does not constitute professional training. The responsibility to practise within their relevant scope remains with the professional, regardless of what CPD training they attend.
