The Journey of LGBTQ2S+ Adoptive & Permanency Parents

June 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

ACO Adoption & Permanency Matters Series Presents: 

The Journey of LGBTQ2S+ Adoptive & Permanency Parents
with Karen Moore, R.S.W. and voices of the LGBTQ2S+ community

Are you a LGBTQ2S+* identified parent who is parenting child(ren) through a permanency journey? Being able to provide trauma-informed care to your children comes with unique challenges for parents who are LGBTQ2S+*. Come join us for this webinar as we explore common themes for parents on this journey including:
  • how to navigate feelings of discomfort
  • internalized homophobia
  •  managing being “outed” by your child/youth
  •  developmental stages of your child and their feelings/thoughts about LGBTQ2S+* folks
  • community resources

BONUS! Get a free language guide written by a first voice expert.

*Our 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.

Recommended Audience: 
  • Parents, caregivers, teachers, partners and the community who wants to connect with and support the adopted child.
