Agenda

Gender, Sexuality, and the Juvenile Justice System: Promoting System Improvement (Webinar)

Seminars

Date

Tuesday 28th of August 2018

Description

Understanding gendered pathways into the juvenile justice system equips providers with ways to effectively focus on the complex needs, vulnerabilities, trends, and opportunities of each gender's unique experiences. Sexuality and gender identity lenses are equally important to create an environment that elevates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer/Gender Nonconforming and Transgender Youth (LGBQ/GNCT) who identify with female and/or male development, or neither, and varying sexualities, allowing them to be more of who they are.

This webinar will present two nationally recognized, research-based, gender responsive support group models - Girls Circle® and The Council for Boys and Young Men® - that have proven results across all sectors with a 20-year history in both prevention and intervention settings nationwide. The theoretical foundation of these model programs is steeped in evidence-based principles that include brain science, resilience, strengths-based positive youth development, trauma, culturally responsive principles, and motivational interviewing practices that stimulate critical thinking within a gender responsive framework.

Participants will be able to identify the two models’ evidence-based outcomes, successful implementation guidelines, and resources including training, manual-guided curriculum, and Q&A tools, and learn how these programs can meet the needs of youth across sectors through a multi-systemic, sustainable approach.
