Brave Conversations training

Youth in foster care need trusted adults in their lives who can meet them where they are and provide information about navigating relationships and sexuality. Learn how to be a safe and trustworthy resource for youth in the 4-hour Brave Conversations training offered in-person or virtually for parents, caregivers, mentors, and other adults.

  • expand your understanding of sex, gender and sexual orientation

  • practice trauma-informed, age appropriate, and inclusive strategies in conversations about sexuality, gender, and relationships

  • identify strategies for setting age-appropriate boundaries and promoting normalcy for youth in care

  • learn how policies in Texas guide sexual health education for youth in care and access to sexual/reproductive health care

  • discuss common questions about sexual and reproductive health and healthy relationships and identify resources and information that can be used with youth
