ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series Presents
Working to Reduce Isolation & Create a Sense of Belonging for LGBTQ+ Students in our District
Wednesday, March 3, 2021 7-8:30pm via Zoom - register here
The ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series and Welsh Valley HSA invite the entire LMSD community to a conversation about LGBTQ+ students and isolation facilitated by Dr. Jeanne Stanley. Over the past year, students throughout the country have faced a global pandemic, national attention on racial injustice, and political divides. Students have experienced a decrease in their social connections as well as an increase in stress, anxiety and depression. For LGBTQ+ students, these experiences may be even more exacerbated, increasing feelings of being different, unsupported or isolated in relation to their sexual and/or gender identity. Our time together will explore some the challenges facing LGBTQ+ students and ways the District has been working to provide support.
Dr. Stanley is the CEO of Watershed Counseling and Consultation Services, a licensed psychologist, national trainer, consultant to LMSD for over ten years, published author, and holds the appointment of Full Adjunct Professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education.
The Parent Education Series is a joint collaboration between the InterSchool Council (ISC) and LMSD Health Services. Each event is hosted by a school HSA (thank you Welsh Valley!), however all members of the Lower Merion School Community are invited and encouraged to attend.
