Description

Course Description:
Safe and Supported, a project of Lighthouse Youth Services, is offering FREE cultural competency training to assist nonprofit professionals in providing supportive and affirming care to LGBTQ young people. (Training goals and competencies also translates to work with LGBTQ adults.)

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) people are often subject to harassment at school, erasure in faith communities, rejection from their families and hostility in youth-serving systems. This systematic abuse leads LGBTQ individuals to have significantly higher rates of depression, suicide, substance abuse and homelessness, to name just a few harmful outcomes. The curriculum goes over a basic LGBTQ 101, values clarification, and skill building.

The curriculum is delivered over 6 ½ hours and offers 5.5 CEUs and includes lunch at no cost to participants. Registration 8:30-9:00AM; training 9:00AM-4PM.

Training Goals and Objectives:

• Explore personal values regarding LGBTQ youth and adults and learn to balance personal beliefs with professional responsibilities.
• Identify issues of risk, challenges and strengths specific to LGBTQ youth, their families, other caregivers and service delivery systems.
• Develop an action plan that will develop or enhance professional and agency cultural competency.
• Increase competence in discussing sexual orientation and gender identity with youth.
• Help families and other caregivers adapt and adjust to young people’s sexual orientation and gender identity.
• To identify affirmative interventions and community resources for LGBTQ youth, their families, other caregivers and service providers.
