Embracing Diversity & Inclusivity in Foster Care
November 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$69
This masterclass will take participants through a journey of understanding sexuality and gender diversity. We will look at the harrowing statistics associated with LGBTQIA+ youth and discuss ways of supporting both identifying children and youth in out of home care as well as their carers in relation to their sexuality and/or gender diversity.
Further, we consider how to confidently assess potential foster and kinship carers with respect to how they will or will not support a child or young person’s identity specifically around sexuality and gender diversity. We cannot cover all the colours of the LGBTQIA+ rainbow in this short masterclass, but will provide participants with a wealth of resources, recommendations and guidance for the future.
