Working with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth
September 15 @ 9:00 am – September 16 @ 12:00 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 webinar 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 versus enforcing societal norms, and the implications of these choices.
Participants will 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 training will involve a mix of educational information, handouts and take aways, and case application to ensure a well-rounded and robust learning experience.
- Understand the developmental process of developing gender and sexual identities in youth
- Learn how to help youth navigate their gender and sexual identity exploration in healthy and meaningful ways
- Learn how to help parents cope with and support children who are exploring their identities
