THE LGBTQ INSTITUTE FOR FAMILY THERAPY (LIFT) CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
LIFT (LGBTQ Institute for Family Therapy) is a training and certification program for Licensed Master Social Workers (LMSW) and Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) who provide therapeutic services to families involved with New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS). LIFT is designed to help clinicians gain additional knowledge, skills, and confidence to reduce the rejecting behaviors of families struggling to accept their LGBTQ children. The program also aims to support families experiencing conflict around their child’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Interested clinicians must submit an application; please note that space is limited. Upon program completion, clinicians will receive CE hours.
