    Improving Services for LGBT+ Populations
    anya gwynne | PARN

    Date: April 11, 2019 | 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST

    Location:

    Peterborough Lions Community Centre | Sisson Room
    347 Burnham St.
    Peterborough, ON K9H 1T5

    Course Description:

    This course provides information for service providers to feel more confident, competent and comfortable providing services to people with diverse gender identities and expressions or whose sexual orientation may be different than the majority. Stigma and marginalization impact an individual’s health and well-being in many ways and affects whether that person will access services when they are in need of them. We want to help agencies to become more accessible, places of welcome for the communities we serve.

    For over 15 years, the Rainbow Youth Program has been providing educational workshops for service providers, including health care professionals, law enforcement, social services and educators, to increase knowledge about LGBT2-SIQA identities and raise awareness about the impacts of homonegativity and transphobia. These workshops are grounded in a strength-based, interactive learning approach, including group work, video and capacity building activities. We work to creating a positive learning environment that allows for asking questions, recognizing new perspectives, and building skills for allyship and best practice care.
