About the Event

Ursula Elsa

Training Description

Examining and dismantling our own implicit gender bias is essential to effectively supporting system involved youth who are queer, trans, and  questioning. In this training, you will learn about microaggressions and how to interrupt bullying and discrimination for LGBTQI+ youth and how to engage in this learning with all system involved youth and families that you support. You will learn mindfulness-based practices to engage LGBTQI+ youth in processing unaccepting attitudes, developing self-awareness, cultivating self-worth and self-love. You will gain tools to deepen your allyship and co-liberatory practices to support system involved youth exploring elements of their gender and sexuality.

Learning Objectives

● Be able to identify at least 2 strategies which can be used to support LGBTQI+ youth and their families.

● Be able to explain why at least 3 key LGBTQI+ terms are important to understand for effectively support of LGBTQI+ system involved youth.

● Acquire activity guides which can be used within current efforts to support system involved youth.
