As vocational rehabilitation practitioners, we strive to deliver the most effective services for all our clients, regardless of their dis/ability, and their summative life experience. To do this we need to follow the Platinum rule: “treat others as they want to be treated”. By doing this we work from a place of real respect, empathy, and curiosity, and subsequently from understanding. Our 2SLGBTQI clients may present for vocational services with barriers to employment that stem from the stigma, ignorance, and inexperience of employers, families, unions, and communities. It is hoped this module will provide learners with the opportunity to increase one’s ability to apply the Platinum rule with 2SLGBTQI clients thereby improving service – and outcomes – for this community.
