Congratulations to Dr. Leitch, whose paper “The Psychometric Properties of the Competency Assessment Tool for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Clients” has been added to the National Institutes of Health Sexual & Gender Minority Research Office page on measurement publications: https://dpcpsi.nih.gov/sgmro/measurement/publications.

This measure, designed to asses practitioner competency in working with sexual and gender minority (SGM) has been adapted to assess practice who are gay and lesbian, bisexual, and transgender and gender nonconforming. Dr. Leitch is continuing her work on addressing behavioral health disparities for SGM people through a study of SGM people’s experiences of psychotherapy, funded by a Faculty First grant through the Office of Research and Engagement.

Congratulations, Dr. Leitch!
