reflect on engaging in practice with 2SLGBTQIA+ children and youth that challenges cisnormativity and heteronormativity, and centres their well-being.
What are some strategies social workers might use to engage with parents who are unsupportive of their child’s gender identity or sexuality, while still providing affirming care to the child or youth they are working with?
What might be some strengths or limitations of these approaches?
How can social workers help foster affirming environments for young LGBTQ2S+ folks, in the agencies and institutions they work in?
How might various tools (i.e. intake forms, assessments) and spaces (i.e. bathrooms) be better designed to support queer, trans and questioning youth?
