Working with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth

Jennifer Thomson, MACP, RP, CPT, NFS and Michelle Bridgman, MSc
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar
September 15 and 16, 2022 | 9 a.m. to noon EST

Working with youth in a mental health setting has a number of challenges on its own; adding in the complexities of youth exploring their sexual and gender identities can seem overwhelming.

This webinar will review the developmental stages that children go through and how they relate to gender and sexuality. We will discuss the nuances of allowing children to explore versus enforcing societal norms, and the implications of these choices.

Participants will learn how to work with families of children who are exploring or questioning their sexuality and gender, and how you can help them navigate these complicated topics.

Guided by Jennifer Thomson and Michelle Bridgman participants will explore:

the developmental process of developing gender and sexual identities in youth
how to help youth navigate their gender and sexual identity exploration in healthy and meaningful ways
how to help parents cope with and support children who are exploring their identities

Registration: $250 ($212.50 if you use the code CAVERSHAM15)
