Welcome Guidance Counsellors!
This is an Add-On support to our Inclusive Classrooms 101 Workshop.
It's about saving lives, strengthening relationships and being able to thrive authentically.
A child's school is often the first port-of-call for a young person exploring their gender identity. Here, Guidance Counsellors can play an integral communication role that can have a lifelong positive impact for a student.
Through inclusive knowledge of language and resources, teachers and counsellors can play an integral, positive role in supporting a child's gender identity.
This course will empower you with tools to bridge the gap between school and home: bridging a gap in gender inclusive practices being taught in school, which many parents are unable to access.
Sharing the knowledge, support, reassurance and helpful navigation can help families navigate a potentially stressful time and can save lives, relationships and empower students to live fully and authentically.
What you'll get:
- 5 tools for building a bridge of empathy and knowledge around gender identity and expression;
- How to inform parents about gender identity and school support practices founded in our Canadian human rights code;
- How to create safe space to support families in transition
- Gender Identity Workbook and resources for family

Course fee $40 CAD - including materials, peer-to-peer support for parents and caregivers and in-transition clothesline.
