About this event

This event is open for any teachers who want to learn more about how to support their LGBTQ+ students at school.

LGBTQ youth are disclosing their identities today at unprecedented levels compared to even 5 years ago. How do you treat LGBTQ youth in the classroom so that your practice is considered ethical and sound? Dr. Alderson will look at the plethora of LGBTQ identity labels and what these mean, and some of the anticipated requests that may result from these identities. This talk will also explore the implications of these identities as they pertain to typical and atypical child development.

Dr. Alderson is full professor of counselling psychology at the University of Calgary (currently on professional leave and transitioning into full-time speaking).
