(Education and Consultative Services (formerly OERP) of UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital) Microsoft Teams Learning Series: Trauma and Resilience in LGBTQ+ Communities 6.26.20
Members of LGBTQ+ communities often experience individual and community trauma that increases the likelihood of poor mental and physical health outcomes. We will discuss the Minority Stress Model and its application to cisgender and transgender populations within LGBTQ+ communities. We will highlight factors associated with resilience and illustrate how community members have created their own sources of resilience. We will describe the role of families in the development of resilience in LGBTQ+ young people and share a personal story highlighting family resilience. Lastly, we will present strategies for providers to apply principles of trauma-informed care to avoid healthcareassociated contributions to trauma and promote optimal outcomes. • Describe risk and resilience in LGBTQ+ community using a Minority Stress Model • Identify factors associated with community resilience • Share a personal story highlighting family resilience • Highlight the protective factors in community and family support • Define the components of trauma informed care. • Begin to develop strategies for applying trauma informed care for transgender patients in the healthcare settings.
