All youth experience challenges adjusting to the emotional issues associated with sexual identity development. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) youth in foster care are a particularly vulnerable population in need of information and opportunities to explore their own sexual identities. LGBTQ+ youth are at significantly elevated risks for suicide, para-suicide, substance abuse, and physical and sexual victimization. This training will provide information, resources, strategies, and activities designed to prepare staff to work effectively with LGBTQ+ youth we serve.
