This workshop is directed at staff of agencies (social workers, case workers and advocates) working with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community. The workshop training focuses on laying the foundation of knowledge, raising awareness of the issues that affect those that identify as part of the larger LGBT community and an understanding of the common language.
The training should translate into increasing sensitivity and efficacy in working with people in crisis. The aim of the program is to accomplish the following three objectives: Increase knowledge, Raise Awareness and Build Resources.
The training includes how to raise awareness about how to work with the LGBTQ and Trans Community to effectively implement change, participants should self-reflect on their own pre-existing knowledge, experiences, and biases. This primarily should center on the pertinent risk factors of working with a crisis population and how that may guide their own actions, as well as how they view the individuals they interact with.
SESSION PROVIDED BY:
Participation in the LGBT 101: Cultural Competency training should lay a foundation of knowledge surrounding the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender community that may be built upon through further information seeking. This would include an understanding of common language, concepts, and risk factors that affect the greater LGBT community.
The Trans 101 is a new training that is being developed right now, to bring to the forefront the misconceptions, getting a better understanding of who they are, resources available to them and how their needs can be properly met when dealing with social service agencies
