by Instructor: Michael P. Dentato, PhD

$20.00

i 1.00 CEH

Course Overview

The coming-out process is a definitively unique and fluid process for each member of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. However, there appear to be common elements in the decision-making process and evaluation of self-awareness and readiness to disclose, which are related to timing, assessing level of acceptability, evaluating the capability to manage myriad reactions, and planning for the potential positive or negative impact. These elements may differ based on intersectionality factors associated with age and age cohort, sex, gender, identity, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, urban or rural location, and religion/spirituality.
