THE LGBTQ INSTITUTE FOR FAMILY THERAPY (LIFT) CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
LIFT is a ground-breaking, six-month 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 for each six-month session; please note that space is limited. Upon program completion, clinicians will receive 54 CE hours. This program is free to eligible clinicians for a limited time!
