CA Assn of School Counselors, Inc.
ASCA’s Ethical Standards state that school counselors advocate and a rm LGBTQ students, yet only 27% of LGBTQ students in California feel comfortable talking to their school counselor about their LGBTQ identity. A lack of cultural competency on LGBTQ identities and fear of pushback often result in hesitancy around LGBTQ inclusion efforts, which create hostile and unwelcoming school climates. There are a growing number of schools offering professional development, updating policies and creating procedures to ensure LGBTQ students are supported and protected. These schools are experiencing dramatic improvements in school climate resulting in increases in attendance, achievement and graduation rates.
Join us to strengthen your knowledge, attitudes and skills to become a more effective advocate for change in your school. Participants will gain a better understanding of our legal obligations, how to effectively address pushback, identify emerging best- practices and gather the latest resources to assist you along the way.
