SEXUALITY AND GENDER: AN INTRODUCTION FOR CARERS

Saturday June 16, 10.00- 12.00.  Japara House, Kilsyth.

Sexuality&Gender

This session will equip you with the tools needed to understand and practically support young people’s relationships, sexuality and gender identity. The presenters will offer research-based information, personal narratives and take-away resources to support kinship and foster carers in the complex endeavour of understanding gender and sexuality in all people as well as learning about specific strategies to respect and support LGBTI youth. 

During this session you will:

  • gain an introductory understanding of sex, gender and sexuality, why it’s important for everyone and the terminology surrounding it
  • understand gender stereotypes and impact they can have on children, young people and adults
  • understand what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like and how to discuss these relationships with young people
  • learn how to have conversations with young people that inform their sexual education without alienating them, including safe sex advice
