This competency training supports those who support system involved youth in deepening their understanding of how to address LGBTQ-specific microaggressions (misgendering, etc.) leveled at system-involved youth and colleagues who work with system-involved youth. Through self-reflection, group discussion, and roleplay, participants will learn to think intersectionally about how to address LGBTQ microaggressions based on role. Participants will learn how to intervene when harassing, discriminatory, or simply harmful language is used against LGBTQ people based on individual power & privilege, and will review four possible responses to microaggressions, paying attention to dynamics at play within the child welfare, juvenile justice, and other social systems.
