This training is only available to residential care workers in Victoria.
Intended outcomes of the session are: Understanding what the letters in LGBTIQ mean; access to research and information about the health status and risks of LGBTIQ youth; increased empathy and understanding about living as LGBTIQ in a heteronormative world; strategies for working well with LGBTIQ youth and the best ways to support their wellbeing.
This professional development session includes a mix of information delivery, discussion and activities leading to transformative learning. Current, Australian evidence-based research that informs best practice when working with LGBTIQ youth will be used as part of the overall teaching, as well as a basic introduction to what the letters stand for, and what is known about the health status and risks of this cohort. A resource list will be provided.
