This free webinar is organized by Human Rights Campaign’s All Children – All Families and offered on multiple dates (click “See all” above to see all upcoming dates).
Foster and adoptive parents are an extremely diverse community of people with one thing in common: the desire to love, nurture and care for children and youth. Many parents may not realize that LGBTQ youth are over-represented in foster care and are at higher risks of rejection and harm while in care. This webinar will first explain key terms and concepts that all foster/adoptive parents need to know in order to better understand LGBTQ youth. Research on the importance of providing affirming homes for these youth, as well as concrete tips for how to be affirming will then be presented.Register for the free webinar on GoToWebinar
