CLINICAL EDUCATION AT SUNSERVE
Medical, mental health and addiction treatment professionals in South Florida are required to provide “culturally competent patient and family centered care.” (Joint Commission). LGBT persons have a right to expect such cultural competency at Florida licensed agencies, facilities and private practices not only in providing a welcoming atmosphere, but also in the delivery of services that address unique needs and are based on best practices.
SunServe is dedicated to the goal of being a resource for the community of clinical professionals who serve the LGBT community. Our clinical staff and many members of our Therapists Collective share their special expertise in clinical training programs. (SunServe is licensed by the Florida Department of Health to provide CEUs to mental health and nursing professionals).
- Hundreds of mental health professionals have been trained on site at SunServe either in graduate student clinical placement or as post graduate Florida registered interns working for licensure.
- Thousands have attended training events provided by SunServe at our offices or at agencies across South Florida, often in affiliation with other organizations and graduate programs at area universities.
