Supportive Facilitated Discussion Group: Supporting LGBTQIA+ Youth in Foster Care - Amara

Supportive Facilitated Discussion Group: Supporting LGBTQIA+ Youth in Foster Care

About this Event

Understanding identities of the child in your care is critical to providing them with the support they need to navigate the development years. Children with an LGBTQIA+ identity may need additional support as they navigate extra social and cultural factors.  In this supportive facilitated discussion group, you will have an opportunity to talk through LGBTQIA+ terminology and identify concrete tools you can use to support a child’s LGBTQIA+ identity.

There are two facilitated discussion sessions:

  • Tuesday October 12, 2021 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM
  • Tuesday October 19, 2021 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM

During these sessions, you can ask questions about resources, share ways you have supported a child in your care, and hear how other caregivers have navigated situations related to a child’s LGBTQIA+ identity.
