October 2023Vol. 24, No. 8Free Online Training on Serving LGBTQ+ Youth and Families in Child Welfare
A new, interactive online training for serving LGBTQ+ youth and families in child welfare settings is available on the National SOGIE Center’s website. The training was developed by the SOGIE Center and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation and covers foundational knowledge about serving LGBTQ+ families, creating affirming environments, best practices, and proper terminology.
The new training is modeled after the HRC’s All Children, All Families training, a promising, evidence-based training that was evaluated through the National Quality Improvement Center on LGBTQ2S Children and Youth in Foster Care grant.
The training is free when users enroll through the SOGIE Center’s learning management system.
