Nurturing, Valuing, and Protecting LGBTQIA+ Youth

Nurturing, Valuing, and Protecting LGBTQIA+ Youth


From 10:30 AM until 12:30 PM ET

At Virtual Event


Presented by Prevent Child Abuse Vermont /

This interactive training discusses the basics of sexuality and trends in data relating to youth of the lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual community. While learning about the acronym “LGBTQIA+” participants discuss the importance of nurturing the discovery and exploration of gender identity. After reviewing current statistics relating to child sexual abuse and the specifics of the impact on LGBTQIA+ youth, participants will then critically think about what is increasing the risk for this population. The session, while examining what it means to be inclusive, also discusses current methods of prevention that youth-serving organizations and all adults who care can take.

This training is for professionals who work with at-risk youth, such as residential care staff, therapeutic foster parents, counselors, social workers, educators, early childhood educators, after school staff, and mentors. The information can also be useful for parents, grandparents, and foster parents.
