Parenting Kids & Young People who Identify as LGBTQ2S+
June 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
ACO Adoption & Permanency Matters Series Presents:
Parenting kids & young people on adoption & permanency journeys who identify as LGBTQ2S+: What you need to know and understand
with Karen Moore, R.S.W. and voices of the LGBTQ2S+ community
This webinar will explore the needs of children/youth who are on the journey of permanency and who also identify as LGBTQ2S+*. As parents, you have an important role to play to honour the multiple needs and identities of your child/youth and this workshop will give you some ideas on how to do just that.
Topics we will explore include:
- how to be an ally for your child/youth,
- how to navigate feelings of discomfort
- common adoption issues and what they mean for LGBTQ2S+* youth (7 Core Issues)
- coping strategies
- province-wide community resources
*ACO’s aim is to create a safer space where all gender and sexual identities are welcome and validated at this workshop. While we will be using this acronym as a blanket term to refer to folks with marginalized gender and sexual identities throughout this training, we also acknowledge that no umbrella term or acronym could possibly represent the rich diversity of identities and experiences within LGBTQ2S+ communities.
- Parents, caregivers, teachers, partners and the community who wants to connect with and support the adopted child.
