General description

Although much progress has been made in freedom and rights for LGTBIQ people, we are still in a society where sexual diversity is condemned. Currently there are 72 countries in the world that penalize LGTBIQ people  and in 8 even with the death penalty. On the other hand, 173 countries do not allow marriages between same-sex couples; and in the American continent 1 LGTB person is murdered a day. Heterosexism is one of the structural roots of this oppression; a way of seeing the world and a value system that prioritizes heterosexuality, assuming that it is the only appropriate manifestation of love and sexuality, thereby devaluing all forms of sexual diversity and social roles that deviate from the heterosexual pattern ( Ritter and Terndrup, 2002). Part of the thesis that gender roles must be determined by the fact of being a man or a woman (patriarchal binary sex-gender system). This oppressive factor, together with other biological, psychological and social variables, generate important barriers for LGBTIQ people to achieve sufficient levels of psychosocial well-being at certain stages of their life. This exclusive and unpublished webinar on this topic  from the Clinical Social Work in Spanish-speaking countries, will make a general review on the basic issues related to sexual and gender affective diversity, analyzed from the perspective of Clinical Social Work, in order to propose keys and useful strategies for intervention clinic with this  population.
