The purpose of this thesis was to develop a comprehensive training workshop aimed at providing child welfare professionals knowledge, skills and tools to make placements safer and more affirming places for actual or perceived sexual minority youths in the welfare system.
This training curriculum includes 22 modules that represent a different goal or facet of a complete training experience. The modules work through issues faced by sexual minority youth (SMY) in a way to help the child welfare professional better understand the challenges that this population encounters everyday in a homophobic society. The training workshop proposed in this thesis uses numerous methods to train the child welfare professionals to better understand the circumstances SMY face in their daily interactions in placement and in their homes if they are allowed to remain in their home of origin.
