APSY 7410 Special Topics; Queering in the Classroom (Summer: 3 )
This course will review and critique current theory, research, and practice related to sexual orientation in psychology and education. There will be a focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues during earlier developmental periods. Four broad areas include: (1) Terminology and models related to sexual orientation identities, gender expression, and prejudice; (2) the intersection of sexual orientation with other social identities; (3) experiences of LGBT individuals across contexts and implications for therapy and educational interventions broadly considered; and (4) relevant policy issues. The course will provide a framework on which to base empirically-supported practices with LGBT clients and students.
