LGBT Specialization Alumni Present at Models of Pride Conference

AULA LGBTQA PrideMA in Clinical Psychology faculty Dr. Theodore Burnes and four Antioch alumni, who are also MFT trainees and interns, presented at the 2016 Models of Pride (MOP) Conference on October, 29th. Held at the University of Southern California campus, the MOP Conference focused on issues that occur within the LGBTQI youth community. Every year, the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s LifeWorks program hosts this free one-day conference with over 100 workshops, a resource fair, and a dance at the end of the night.

The workshop, “What my teacher didn’t tell me: Practical learning in working with LGBTQI youth” was moderated by Dr. Burnes. The alumni focused on their experiences and the strategies they gained as LGBTQI youth workers. In the question-and-answer portion of the presentation, the alumni offered information regarding skills and resources for those interested in working with the LGBTQI youth community.

On November 18th, Dr. Burnes and the alumni also presented the same workshop at the Penny Lane Centers’ 8th Annual EDGY Conference – Embracing the Diversity of GLBTQ Youth & Families. EDGY is a one-day conference that offers tools for professionals, parents, and advocates to support and empower gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth and families.
