This is a virtual session.
Trainer: Diane Bigler, MSW, LCSW, LSCSW

Course Summary

How can providers best support LGBTQ+ youth? Having a thorough understanding other experiences and challenges of LGBTQ+ youth is essential to being a competent care provider. This training will introduce learners to valuable statistics about the experiences and perceptions of our youth in this community. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth experience trauma at higher rates than their straight peers. Trauma informed knowledge, skills, and resources are necessary to capture a full picture of what LGBTQ youth might be experiencing. Learners will be introduced to the principles of trauma informed care, and the realities of trauma within this community. Affirming tools for clinicians to assess trauma experiences in youth will be shared and clinical recommendations for effective and sensitive practice will be presented. Learners will engage in more trauma informed practices with LGBTQ youth and feel more confident in supporting this community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize common experiences and challenges of LGBTQ+ youth.
  • Demonstrate ability to assess the general needs of LGBTQ+ youth.
  • Enhance knowledge, skill, and ability to effectively assess trauma experiences with LGBTQ+ youth.
