In this fourth segment of our Boundaries in Psychotherapy Series, Dr. Zur outlines issues relating to bartering in therapy. Some clients are too poor to afford monetary payment, and a bartering arrangement may work very well for them. On the other end of the spectrum, a very rich client may give no value to money – so perhaps their contributing community service as payment for therapy is more appropriate. Bartering comes with its own set of interesting issues, and Dr. Zur delves into them here.

In communities throughout California and around the nation, LGBT people face high rates of discrimination, harassment, and exclusion. Despite media portrayals of LGBT people as white and middle or upper class, in fact LGBT people exist in every community. Many have limited financial resources, come from marginalized cultural and/or geographic backgrounds, and need legal aid services and support. Fulfilling the promise of legal aid advocacy means bringing our expertise and resources to these populations. This session will cover basic LGBT terminology, the unique needs of LGBT low-income clients, practical approaches to discussing sexual orientation and gender identity with clients, and steps offices can take to provide welcoming and respectful services to LGBT clients.
Presented by: Cathy Sakimura of the National Center for Lesbian Rights and Dan Torres of California Rural Legal Assistance

As the boys (and the film crew) will now admit, this is the scariest challenge they ever faced in the history of the show. “Survival Challenge in Alabama”: Drive through Alabama with offensive slogans painted on their cars and try not to get killed. Things are tense on the highway, then reach boiling point at a gas station.
