A family response to their child’s coming out is the single most important predictor of outcomes for LGBTQ youth. Research also demonstrates that a family’s initial response is rarely their final response. With family preservation as a core value for DCF, it is critically important that Social Workers have the tools to help families negotiate their journey to acceptance of their child. This interactive half day workshop will: *Explore the concerns that families typically raise, *Consider the potential impact of race, ethnicity, religiosity, gender norms and other family attributes or identities on family acceptance,*Identify and practice strategies for intervention
