Trainings We Offer
Affirmations provides a monthly Diversity & Inclusion Training to all staff, interns and volunteers. The training is an intensive, four-hour training based on and guided by The Michigan Roundtable for Diversity & Inclusion and made up of a team of staff trainers, including London Bell and Jon Fitzgerald. Currently, all staff, interns and volunteers attend this training.  This is the first phase of a multi-level development.  Watch for this insightful program to expand early in 2012 and become available to the community at large. 

Affirmations Overview and LGBTQA 101
Do you have questions about Affirmations and it's programs and services? Do you wonder what is LGBTQA? If so, this training is essential for you and your class, agency, organization or corporation. These and other questions will be answered during this two hour training. You will learn language and terminology commonly used in the LGBTQ community while being provided with resources pertaining to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community throughout Metro Detroit. 

LGBTQ Safety in Schools
Youth today are coming out as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender younger than ever before. Unfortunately, many schools and social service providers are not keeping up with this cultural change and youth are paying the price. This training will include language and terminology used within the LGBT youth community, the effects of bullying in today's schools, barriers to success for LGBT teens, and provide information about Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs) and other local resources. This interactive training can range from one to two hours and be adapted for teens, educators or social service agencies. 

Professional Training & Development for Mental Health Professionals
Affirmations offers professional training and development for mental health practitioners on issues related to gender identity and sexual orientation.
