OUT Maine announces new clinician training

Oct 03, 2018

Rockland — OUT Maine is now able to offer a full-day training for behavioral health practitioners working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth and their families. "Best Practices for Working with LGBTQ Youth and Families While Navigating the Ethical Challenges" will be available beginning this fall throughout Maine and is eligible for seven contact hours of training.

The training grew out of behavioral health practitioners’ continued requests for more in-depth information and strategies for working with these at-risk youth and families. The Maine Health Access Foundation supported the training’s development.

Recent grants from United Midcoast Charities, the Maine Community Foundation Regional Community Building Program and the Betterment Fund will underwrite trainings to take place in the Midcoast, Downeast, in northern and western Maine in the coming year. Practitioners who work with these youth over time – in private practices, schools and community agencies – are encouraged to check outmaine.org for the most up-to-date listing of dates for the course. Preregistration is required.
