Despite the best efforts of support personnel, students who identify as LGBTQ+ experienced lower academic achievement than their heterosexual/cisgender peers. The presenters developed and delivered a workshop to teach basic helping skills to undergraduate student teachers and school administration students, which significantly increased the affirmative practice beliefs of the students. Implications for counselors, supervisors, and counselors educators will be provided.
