The diversification of family demographics, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) parents and their children, continue to change within school communities. However, scholarship that explores how school counselors welcome and incorporate LGBT families is scarce. As such, the presenters suggest that the development of the school counselor as an ally for LGBT families starts in the training program. This interactive session will allow attendees to learn, discuss, and share how training programs can scaffold LGBT family representation across the 2016 CACREP Standards as well as in specific school counseling courses.
