    Trauma Informed Assessment of LGBTQ+ Youth


    10:00-11:30am

    1.5 CEUs

    LGBTQ and gender-expansive youth experience trauma at higher rates than their straight peers. Trauma informed knowledge, skills, and resources are necessary to capture a full picture of what a LGBTQ youth might be experiencing. This workshop will introduce learners to the principles of trauma informed care, and the realities of trauma within this community. Affirming tools for clinicians to assess trauma experiences in youth will be shared and clinical recommendations for effective and sensitive practice will be presented. Learners will engage in more trauma informed practices with LGBTQ and gender expansive youth and feel more confident in supporting this community.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Outline trauma-informed care principles applied to LGBTQ and gender expansive youth trauma assessment
    • Employ clinical assessment approaches to incorporate the Screening for the Intersection of Trauma with Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SO/GI) assessment tool with youth and caregivers
    • Reflect on experiences of completing the SO/GI screener in order to better inform individual and organizational practice
