This training provides an overview of SOGIE (sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression) in which we will define these categories, discuss appropriate language to use when talking about SOGIE, and explain pronouns, with specific focus on gender-neutral pronouns; looking at how SOGIE intersects with systems such as mental health and foster care; trauma-informed approaches when working with LGBTQ youth; becoming LGBTQ affirming; and intervening when LGBTQ youth are being mistreated based on their SOGIE.
