Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth face significant challenges in developing a positive identity, gaining acceptance and support for who they are, and making a successful transition to adulthood. These issues are often compounded by their involvement with the child welfare system as they stuggle with family issues, out-of-home placements, and achieving permanency.
This course provides particpants with increased understanding of who LBGTQ youth are, the issues and problems they face and how to work with them effectively. Participants will increase their knowledge of sexual identity, the coming out process, psychosocial risk factors, and LGBTQ youth in the foster care system, best practice guidelines and skills for individual counseling with LGBTQ youth, working with families, residential care guidelines, supporting the transition to adulthood, and providing appropriate resources and referrals.
