"How and Why to Use LGBTQ+ Inclusive Language in Psychology"
Education/Schools/Training

"In this guidebook, we raise awareness and help inform readers and mental health professionals about inclusive language best practices, why inclusive language is crucial for people's mental health, and how the LGBTQ+ community can be affected by the language we choose to use in our practice and daily communication. We worked with David Alonzo, a GLSEN certified professional development facilitator, to create this in-depth resource and to provide our readers with the best tips for developing inclusive language skills."

Healthy Life Recovery: How to Stage an Addiction Intervention
Crisis Intervention

Online resource guide on how to help a loved one struggling with addiction.

"It can be excruciating to watch a loved one struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. Family members and close friends of those experiencing addiction often find it challenging to help, especially when the sufferer has a difficult time acknowledging that they need help, which is often the case.

Having an open and honest conversation may begin the recovery process; however, a more comprehensive approach is usually necessary. A formal intervention can help someone with addiction understand how their behavior is affecting those around them and offer a way out."
