SoC Best Practices Equity and Inclusion | Supporting LGBTQ Youth & Families

February 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Presented by Kynetta Sugar McFarlane, PsyD

REGISTER HERE

Sexual minority or queer youth are coming out at earlier ages, in part attributed to the higher visibility of LGBTQ+ people in everyday life, the media, and greater access to information about sexual minorities. Unfortunately, individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ have higher risk factors for suicidality, substance abuse, bullying, and homelessness. This training will begin by introducing the concept of queer theory and exploring how privilege and prejudice effect the queer community. Participants will learn current terminology while exploring LGBT+ history and the developmental processes of queer youth.

6 CEs for SW, C, Psych, RN and LPN


Connection: To ensure CIP COE provides top quality training and learning experiences, all participants must have their cameras on for the entire training event to attend and receive credit. The attendance and participation expectations are the same for virtual and in-person training events: no multitasking, follow along, engage, and participate in discussions and other activities, no traveling in a car or attending concurrent meetings.

Note: If you join the training without your camera on, you will be removed and need to reschedule.

1. Bandwidth issues: inform your agency and make plans to access a connection that is conducive for camera-on, engaged learning.

2. Chromebook or similar devices generally complicate your connection. You will not be able to obtain chat information etc.; you will need alternative options.

3. Phoning in with audio (no video) cannot verify attendance, you will be removed from the training and unable to ear credits.
