GOSHH – Gender Orientation Sexual Health HIV: Working with LGBTI+ Young People - Limerick


GOSHH are providing a training day for professionals who work with LGBTI+ Young People in the Mid-West.

The LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy states that organisations should be addressing the following areas

  • Discrimination, victimisation, stigmatisation, and abuse
  • Bullying and harassment in school, colleges, workplaces, and the community
  • 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 are providing this 1 day training. The aim of this workshop is to support professionals working with young people to:

  • build confidence to facilitate LGBTI+ discussions
  • increase capacity to support service users who identify as LGBTI+
  • identify and become familiar with best practice guidelines and policies
  • learn to identify homophobic and transphobic behaviour.
  • build capacity to support individuals who are experiencing discrimination on the grounds of gender and orientation.
  • explore how gender and orientation impacts individuals experience of society.

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