Senator Ted Lieu, Keynote Speaker for the 18th Annual LGBTQI Psychotherapy Conference

18th Annual LGBTQI Psychotherapy Conference

November 3, 2013
Phillips Graduate Institute
Chatsworth, CA

The Lesbian and Gay Psychotherapy Association of Southern California, Inc. (LAGPA) announces its Eighteenth Annual LGBTQI Psychotherapy Conference. The conference is a one-day event co-hosted and co-sponsored by Phillips Graduate Institute (PGI). The conference is being held Sunday November 3, 2013 in Chatsworth, CA at PGI and presents academic research and expertise on LGBTQI issues and concerns to professionals working with these clients in their psychotherapy practices. The conference is designed to meet the educational needs of psychiatrists, psychologists, LCSW, MFT, MSW, CAADAC Certified and Registered addiction professionals, interns, and students of psychology, and earns continuing education credits from APA, BBS and CAADAC. Approximately 100 working professionals are expected to attend. Prior conferences have been held at Antioch University Los Angeles, University of Southern California, and the Gay and Lesbian Center.

Senator Ted Lieu is scheduled as keynote speaker. He will speak on SB 1172— the bill he sponsored prohibiting mental health providers from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) in patients under 18 years of age. Although the bill was signed into law, it has been challenged in court and awaits a decision. The legality of SOCE is of great interest to therapists working with LGBTQI clients.
