Research shows that people are happier and more productive in an environment in which they feel they can be themselves without fear of harassment or abuse and although society as a whole is becoming more tolerant of the diversity of sexual orientations, homophobia is still ingrained in many institutions and communities. This continues to have an extremely negative affect on the lives of LGBT people.
This course will explore sexuality and gender and provide participants with deeper knowledge and skills around the topic.
By the end of the course participants will:
- Discuss attitudes to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered young people.
- Discuss stereotypes, judgments and assumptions around sexuality
- Describe LGBT issues affecting young people and identify ways of supporting the young people you work with around these issues.
- Define and understand terminology
- Demonstrate practical skills to support a young person with a disclosure
- Describe how to develop professional practice to ensure LGBT inclusivity within SRE work with young people
- Identify practical ways to challenge homophobia in a youth setting
- Identify where to signpost young people for support
