This training supports professionals in supporting caregivers who reject LGBTQ youth in their care for religious and/or spiritual reasons. It is often difficult for professionals supporting queer and/or trans youth in care to know how to talk to caregivers, whether biological family, resource parents, clinical providers, or other caring adults, about the importance of acceptance and affirmation during and after a young person comes out. Rejection by caregivers and important adults have lifelong impacts on LGBTQ youth on individual and systemic levels. This training will discuss common anti-LGBTQ spiritual/religious beliefs, review research related to health outcomes associated with religious-based rejection, and offer 10+ LGBTQ-affirming resources already available in the five major world religious faith traditions.
