Cultural competency and other trainings for licensed professionals, agency staff and community. Do you want to work more effectively with sexual and gender minority patients or clients? Looking for a training on an LGBTQ health and wellness topic? Are you a licensed provider in need of continuing education credits? We offer a range of trainings and talks focused on the health, behavioral health, and legal needs of sexual and gender minority youth and adults.
Since our founding, Whitman-Walker and our staff have been sought after experts and thought leaders in the field of LGBTQ cultural competence and health. We have provided training to health care professionals and entities, government agencies, attorneys and law firms, non-profit organizations, educators, and many others.
About our trainings:
Trainings are available in several formats including: two-hour introductory workshops, four-hour core trainings, or comprehensive day-long gatherings.
We are glad to work with you to customize trainings. Note: Some core competency trainings and those that offer continuing education credits may not be as customizable.
The cost of our trainings varies based on session length, location, number of trainers, and whether the training offers continuing education credits.
Special note about DC’s new LGBTQ Cultural Competency CEU requirement for licensed professionals: in 2016 DC passed a law requiring all licensed professionals to complete 2 Continuing Education hours in LGBTQ cultural competency as part of the relicensing process. Each professional licensing board is determining exactly how and when this requirement will go into effect. Whitman-Walker offers affordable trainings to help meet this requirement.
