Working with 2SLGBTQ+ Youth in a Clinical Setting

March 24 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

Working with youth in a mental health setting has a number of challenges on its own; adding in the complexities of youth exploring their sexual and gender identities can seem overwhelming. This workshop will review the developmental stages that children go through and how they relate to gender and sexuality. We will discuss the nuances of allowing children to explore their identities versus enforcing societal norms, and the implications of these choices. Learn how to work with families of children who are exploring or questioning their sexuality and gender, and how you can help them navigate these complicated topics.

The workshop will involve a mix of educational information, handouts and take aways, and case application to ensure a well-rounded and robust learning experience.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be better able to:

  1. Understand the developmental process of developing gender and sexual identities in youth
  2. Learn how to help youth navigate their gender and sexual identity and the relationship between the two, in healthy and meaningful ways
  3. Learn how to help parents cope with and support children who are exploring their identities
