Sexual Health Considerations with LGBTQIA+ Clients:
Implications for Client Safety, Sexual Satisfaction,
and Overall Well-Being

Dr. Harpreet Malla

Due to social and cultural stigmatization, issues of sexual health that arise in the LGBTQIA+ population are at times overlooked or ignored.  Clinicians and clients are unsure of how to bring up or address these topics in session. This presentation will show how in-depth discussions, using methods such as the PLISSIT Model (Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions, and Intensive Therapy), can provide insight into a client’s safety, sexual satisfaction, and overall well-being  especially when working with couples. We will review and explore the clinical implications of recent National Institute of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO) updates on HIV+ transmission.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
  1. Identify multiple sources of stigma re: sexuality for LGBTQ+ populations 
  2. Utilize the PLISSIT model in bringing up sexual topics

  3. Understand u = u in terms of HIV+ transmissibility.

Harpreet Malla is a registered psychologist who is currently collecting her post-doctoral hours for licensure at Shanti Orange County in Laguna Hills, CA. She identifies as a 1.5 generation Indian-American feminist and enjoys navigating the cultural nuances those experiences have brought her. Dr. Malla has a passion for working with identity development as it pertains to LGBTQ, bicultural, and adolescent/young adult populations and recently has seen a rise in couples navigating arranged or other nontraditional marital practices in her work. She is also the Diversity Chair for LACPA.
