Assessing Our Readiness to Work With Sexual Minorities
Before you start on this discussion, complete Part 1 (items 1–10) of The Social Justice Advocacy Readiness Questionnaire in the Chen-Hayes article. Use your responses to the questionnaire and the readings of this unit to prepare a post that reflects on your own readiness to work with sexual minorities. Specifically address your spiritual or religious beliefs and how those may present challenges or opportunities in working with clients who are sexual minorities. How will you address any challenges your beliefs may present to your preparedness to respond ethically and competently to the needs of sexual minority clients? Under what circumstances might you seek supervision to support your clinical competence in working with a sexual minority client?
