This training will educate those who support system involved youth about how to support acceptance and healing for sexual minority youth. Participants will learn to define sexual minority (LGBQ youth, sexually exploited youth), and explore the overlaps in experience of sexual minority system involved youth. Participants will learn and discuss the concept of shame and how it relates to non-heteronormative sexual identities, as well as experiences with childhood sexual abuse and/or sexual exploitation. Finally, participants will review five antidotes to shame and embody using these practices through group activity.
