Event/Product information

Gender and sexuality are central features of identity development in adolescence. When a person’s internal experience of gender and/or sexuality does not match with what would typically be expected based on their external appearance or due to mainstream expectations, it can cause great distress and difficulty. Caregivers can also struggle with knowing how best to respond and support youth in these situations. Participants of this three day training will have the opportunity to increase their awareness and understanding of what this experience can be like. They will learn from other care providers about typical struggles and victories from supporting youth, and develop ideas of key steps for creating more accessible and welcoming environments for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, two-spirit, transsexual, queer and questioning individuals.

This special 3-day training is offered in partnership with the Rainbow Resource Centre.
