Gender and Sexual Diversity
CARDEA, Stephanie Hebert (MEd)
This course is designed to help participants increase cultural proficiency in working with gender and sexually diverse (GSD) clients and communities. Participants will explore the dimensions of gender and sexuality, including sex or gender assigned at birth, sexual orientation, gender expression, and gender identity. The course will also examine the impact of stigma and discrimination on GSD populations, and strategies for creating safer spaces in our agencies for these clients. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to practice responding to a variety of case scenarios in which an ally may be able to educate and raise awareness of issues related to respecting clients who identify as gender or sexually diverse.
