Dr. Vincent "Vinnie" Pompei from the Human Rights Campaign will be at the CASC Office and Training center on Monday, Oct. 21 providing school counselors with a rare professional development opportunity regarding specific needs and new laws associated with the LGBTQ population.A small number of school counselors will be able to experience Vinnie's unique, informative and conversational style of training, and will learn the essential elements in assisting their LGBTQ students. Studies have shown districts' often lack expertise in cultural competency factors related to LGBTQ identities. This coupled with fear of pushback often result in hesitancy around LGBTQ inclusion efforts. Attendees will gain a better understanding of LGBTQ legal obligations, how to effectively address pushback, identify emerging best-practices and gather the latest resources to assist them along the way. There are only a few remaining spaces available. Go to www.schoolcounselor-ca.org.
