Re-storying Lost Identities in Families with Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive Identities Although family members vary in their degree and pace of acceptance of a family member that differs in their sexual, affectional, intersex, and/or gender expansive identity, most struggle adjusting to the change in their identity as a family. When an individual comes out, family members may be affected regardless of their own gender identity or sexual orientation. Reactions may include grief, shame, anger and worries about their family. Counselors can help family members identify and process feelings around ambiguous loss through the use of The Relationship Tree and guide families into reauthoring their family’s transition story. 

Training Objectives: 

1. Participants will be able to analyze their own values, beliefs, and behaviors associated with working with LGBTQI+ clients through the use of a self-assessment tool.

2. Participants will be able to apply an ethical decision-making process for working with LGBTQI+ clients.

3. Participants will be able to identify and educate families on ambivalent guilt reactions and ambiguous loss as it relates to their Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive expansive loved-one.

4. Participants will be able to demonstrate the use of The Relationship Tree as an experiential approach to processing grief as it relates to ambivalent feelings and ambiguous loss.

5. Participants will be able to facilitate the process of identifying perceived losses related to the family member and guide clients to reauthor their family story
