Context and Practice: Trauma-Informed Approaches to Building Affirming Environments for LGBTQ+ Youth


In this workshop, participants will explore the identities and experiences of LGBTQ+ youth who face a variety of structural and interpersonal traumas. We will provide a brief overview of LGBTQ+ youth inequities, and explore the challenges of domestic violence in LGBTQ+ communities along with its impact on youth. We will conclude by sharing the benefits of trauma-informed care for LGBTQ+ youth and share approaches that can be used in participants' daily programming and care efforts.
