This training supports providers in understanding intersecting concerns for girls, young women, and transgender, gender nonconforming, and nonbinary youth who are system-involved. Participants will define gender minority as encompassing the gender identities above, and review four systemic barriers for gender minority youth in the child welfare system within our current sociohistorical context. Participants will also identify three differential outcomes and three overlapping concerns for gender minorities in the child welfare system. In small and large groups, we will explore four strategies for addressing systemic & individual barriers for gender minority youth, including reviewing how to advocate for gender minority youth and how to use community resources.
