Recurring Event Event Series: Supporting Families with LGBTQ+ Children

Supporting Families with LGBTQ+ Children

Thu Dec 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

December 1, 8 and 15th 7-8pm over Zoom

This three-session community education class will cover a variety of topics to support parents/caregivers who have a child who is LGBTQ+ and/or gender fluid or questioning.

Our first session will focus on Gender Etiquette 101. This includes:
* A discussion of pronoun usage
* Exploring key concepts
* Understanding why language matters

 The second session will focus on:
* Supporting parents and caregivers by exploring developmental stages
* A discussion of what is considered ‘normal’
* Exploring strategies to encourage open communication with your child

In the third session, we will explore:
* A variety of topics in partnership with JFCS counseling staff including how to support the mental well-being of people in your life who are LGBTQ+, including those who are non-binary, gender fluid, or questioning
*  We will set aside time for reflection, questions, and connection with the group.

Come for one or all of the sessions. All are welcome and encouraged to attend as we create this safe and respectful space for learning, sharing and connection.
