AI - Gender Affirming Care for Youth in Foster Care


Friday, November 22, 2019
Reference: 
POLICY

CFSA’s gender affirmative care practice centers on providing developmentally appropriate case management that is oriented toward understanding and appreciating the youth’s gender experience. Social workers, nurse care managers (NCM), and resource providers (i.e. foster parents and congregate care providers) establish strong, nonjudgmental partnerships with children and families, and create a supportive environment within which to help them navigate complicated emotions and gender-diverse expressions.
