Understanding Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression – An Introduction for Families

This is a customized, interactive training designed for families from a training created by En Route Consulting for WA State Health Care Authority. This training creates a space for understanding and learning together in order to better support those around us who identify differently than we do. Participants will learn the relevant and appropriate language and terms within the LGBTQ+ community, hear from community experts on what was helpful and what was not helpful as youth identifying in a gender non-conforming way, begin the conversation on how we as parent/caregivers can best support the youth in our lives to allow open space for discussions, questions, and thoughts to be shared with us, and share relevant resources to support families in their personal growth and learning around this topic. (2-hour training)
