Calgary Sexual Health Centre: Working with Sexually and Gender Diverse Youth and their Natural Supports
Date: Wednesday, February 14
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Description: For the last 4 years, we’ve been learning about the importance of natural supports in the lives of youth, in particular for youth who are sexually and gender diverse. This workshop will increase participants’ understanding and awareness of sexual and gender diversity and the issues sexually and gender diverse (S&GD) youth face. We will discuss key strategies for working with S&GD youth, such as language use, how to find and work with their natural supports, and how to begin developing LGBTQ-positive practices and programs. We will also discuss what it takes to create safer spaces that are LGBTQ youth inclusive, and how to provide LGBTQ-appropriate referrals.
