Providing 2SLGBTQQIA+ Youth Equitable Care
Trainer: Judah Joslyn, LPCC Candidate, Executive Director, Trans Queer Youth Collective (TQYC)
November 10, 2022
The CIBHS Critical Conversation Series is continuing to dive deeper into Transgender Equitable Care in offering our next training, Providing 2SLGBTQQIA+ Youth Equitable Care, on November 10, 2022 from 1-3pm (PST).
Laws and policies have been sweeping across the country through all systems of care for youth that impact overall wellbeing of trans and queer youth. While states such as California have made provisions protecting gender diverse youth, the impact of other states’ laws and actions are still being seen here in California and have a pervasive effect on youth across the country regardless of their home states laws. Increased fear, lack of knowledge, and general misunderstanding of how to care for trans and queer youth create even greater barriers for youth and exacerbate an already challenging and often confusing time in these young people’s lives, especially those who sit at the intersections of race and class.
Trainer, Judah Joslyn, will discuss the challenges faced by trans and gender diverse youth and provide strategies for effective behavioral health care, and describe how to apply Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, & Expression (SOGIE) care through an intersectional behavioral health equity lens.
This training will help participants create a space as safe as possible when working with trans youth, using an intersectional lens with an understanding of the present socio-political climate. The focus is on building knowledge about trans youth competent care and helping clinicians create strategies for breaking down barriers and building trust with transgender and gender diverse youth.
While this training is a deeper dive from the previous training, it is not necessary to have taken that training on trans competent care. The instructor will provide pre-work to help participants gain the foundation needed to successfully take this training.
The target audience for this webinar includes behavioral health services staff and providers: adult, peers, clinicians, supervisors, and administrators.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define at least 3 unique behavioral health challenges/barriers faced by Trans and Queer youth.
- Define at least 3 critical factors for the provisions of equity focused on 2SLGBTQQIA+ youth competent behavioral health care.
- Describe at least 3 strategies for effective communication with 2SLGBTQQIA+ youth and their families.
