All Children – All Families Provides Training for Professionals Who Work With LGBTQ Children, Youth, and Families
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is offering a training program designed to promote policies and practices among child welfare agencies and practitioners that are inclusive of youth identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ). The program, All Children – All Families, offers two training programs: a training for facilitators designed to increase an agency's internal training capacity and a three-part training series for agency staff. The training for facilitators takes place over 3 days and equips agency staff to deliver five modules that cover the basics of working with LGBTQ children, youth, and families.
- An introduction to LGBTQ competency for child welfare professionals
- Best practices for serving LGBTQ families
- Best practices for serving LGBTQ youth in foster care
