IFCO 2020 - Making a difference for LGBTQ2S+ children and young people in foster care

Start Date:2/24/2021

Start Time:11:00 AM EST

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:


This workshop will aim to deepen the understanding of the issues young LGBTQ2S+ individuals can face when coming into a foster family. It will start with a presentation providing an overview of the key issues and experiences of LGBTQ2S+ youth.

Presenters will highlight current events in the media, and discuss educational strategies carers and staff can implement in their own services. Using case studies, the participants will be broken into groups to explore the specific needs of children and young people, and work together to identify any resources and supports that may be required in each study.
