A problem facing our world today is the bombardment of beliefs about love, sex, gender, and identity that truly needs Christians to vocally and persistently speak the Truth in Love. Unfortunately, this may prove to be difficult, especially for youth to hear and understand. In this workshop, licensed mental health professionals, medical professionals, and ministry leaders will gain tools and skills to help parents and young Christian clients have a biblical worldview on gender and sexuality by starting with a biblical foundation and developing age-appropriate conversations. Participants will learn how to teach willing parents the tools to navigate these micro-conversations and give young people good answers and healthy, age-appropriate understandings about gender and sexuality. This workshop will help clinicians, medical personnel, and ministry leaders have tools and strategies to teach parents how to have “The Talk” when children are ready.

Learning Objectives 

Participants will: 

Describe tools and strategies to teach parents or utilize with young Christian clients for “The Talk.”

Identify how to help parents begin their own study and preparation to lead their children toward a biblical worldview.

Outline applicable and age-appropriate topics imperative to address developmentally at the right time.
