California Association of School Counselors
This webinar is being recorded and can be found here at the conclusion of the event.
ASCA’s ethical standards call on school counselors to advocate for and affirm LGBTQ+ students. Sadly, only 32% of LGBTQ+ students in California always feel safe in their classroom and only 27% feel comfortable talking to their school counselor about their LGBTQ+ identity. A lack of cultural humility and fear of pushback often result in hesitancy around LGBTQ+ inclusion efforts leaving these students to fend for themselves. Participants will leave this session with a stronger understanding of LGBTQ+ identities, emerging challenges that impact mental wellness, legal obligations and practical actions school counselors can take to create needed change.
