Practice Skills for Working with LGBTQ Youth

May 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

LGBTQ youth are over-represented in the child welfare system, making up 20% of youth in care. In many jurisdictions, the majority of LGBTQ youth in care are also youth of color. This workshop is the first of a two-part workshop offering practice-based knowledge and activities that facilitate the development of skills for affirming, intersectionally grounded, and anti-racist practice with child welfare involved LGBTQ youth. Presenters: June Paul, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the Social Work Department at Skidmore College, and Sarah Mountz, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor at University at Albany School of Social Welfare.
