SUMMER LEARNING SERIES
The Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Gender Expression (SOGIE) learning series will expand social workers understanding of Social Identity in order to challenge perceptions and strengthen your practice when working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons.
SOGIE Basics will be offered the first 30 minutes prior to each training. All participants are encouraged to attend SOGIE Basics once, prior to attending any key topic. This will enhance the participant’s learning by clarifying LGBT concepts and terminology.
