The staff at Bilerico was tipped off to a wonderful workshop happening in a few weeks at the University of Indianapolis. It's good to see workshops on these issues; I've heard stories that GLB issues are occasionally seen as unimportant by some up-and-coming therapists. While it's not a huge rally, or a dicey political situation, these events represent real progress.

"Understanding and Ethically Treating Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Clients"

Keynote Speaker: Simon LeVay, PhD
Panelists: Julia Lash, PhD; Chris Falley, LMFT; Jean Capler, LCSW
Friday, Nov. 13, 2009, Schwitzer Student Center, University of Indianapolis, Banquet Room A
Sponsored by the University of Indianapolis School of Psychological Sciences Registration
