Working with LGBTI+ Young People – free training for professionals working with LGBTI+ Young People

GOSHH

GOSHH are providing free training days for professionals who are working with LGBTI+ Young People in the Mid-West.

The LGBTI+ National youth Strategy states that organizations should be addressing the following areas:

  • Discrimination, victimization, stigmatization, and abuse.
  • Difficulties coming out to families and communities
  • Limited understanding by professional service providers and broader society of LGBTI+ issues
  • Mental, physical and sexual health challenges

In response to this, GOSHH will be providing a number of one day training workshops. The aim of the day is to support professionals working with young people who identify as LGBTI+.

Some of the key learning goals of the day include:

  • Building confidence to facilitate LGBTI+ discussions
  • Increase capacity to support clients/service users who identify as LGBTI+
  • Identify & become familiar with best practice guidelines & policies
  • Learn to identify Homophobic & Transphobic behaviour
  • Build capacity to support individuals who are experiencing discrimination on the grounds of their gender and/or orientation
  • Explore how gender and orientation impacts the experience of individuals in society.

The workshop has elements of facilitated discussion, participatory learning, and personal development. Methodologies include large and small group work, individual reflection, group discussion and audio visual learning aids.

These events are funded by the Department of Children, Disability, Equality, Integration & Youth under the What Works Knowledge Sharing initiative.
