LGBTQ Youth Issues brings relevant research and clinical practice into focus for youth-serving professionals. Youth who are LGBTQ often are an invisible population, but every youth-serving organization has clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning. With a combination of practice tips, proven research, and case narratives, this book is a helpful guide for workers who want to address the needs of youth who may be confronting challenges in their families, at school, in out-of-home care, or in the wider community. This edition gives particular focus to youth who are LGBTQ and are runaways or homeless, and youth in juvenile justice settings. In addition, this edition focuses on creating healthy social, dating, and relationship environments for youth who are LGBTQ. This is a must-have book for all youth-serving professionals.
