Abstract: his facilitator‘s guide outlines the key activities and background information needed for the training of clinical and non clinical health care providers responsible for delivering youth friendly services to sub-populations including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. The guide is laid out in four chapters; 1. Exploring Values and Diversity; 2. Exploring the Complexity of Sexual Orientation; 3. Communication Skills for Optimal Health Care; and 4. Theory to Practice The facilitator‘s guide provides training activities design to guide the facilitator on how to stimulate critical thinking and encourage interaction among the participants. The activities will lead the facilitator and participants to examine their deeply held views about sexual orientation and sexual behaviour. The facilitator will engage participants in a process of defining sexual orientation and examining its complexities. Participants will develop and in some cases deepen their understanding of the terms ―lesbian,gay, bisexual and transgender. By engaging in the activities participants will appreciate that assumptions can lead to stereotypes and unfair judgements about individuals and groups and how stereotypes and biases affect our lives. They will be introduced to gender neutral language required for communicating with LGBT people seeking health care services and will have an opportunity to practice using gender sensitive language during role play. To ensure realism it is recommended that as much as possible members of the GLBT community should be recruited to play themselves during the role play activity. As implied this document is a guide and facilitators must feel free to adapt the content through the use of other relevant activities. This facilitator‘s guide is a working document which should be revised as needs and contexts change.
