This new, revised edition brings recent research and clinical practice regarding LGBTQ youth into focus for all kinds of youth-serving professionals. These youth are often an invisible population, but it's safe to say that every agency that works with youth has had clients who identify as LGBTQ. With a combination of practical tips, proven research, and personal vignettes - where the youth are able to speak for themselves - this book is a guide for workers who want to help LGBTQ youth confront challenges with their families, at school, in out-of-home care, or in the wider community. New in this edition is a chapter on transgender youth issues, a chapter on other special populations of LGBTQ youth, and specially highlighted sections in each chapter that answer the question, What Can Youth Workers Do? .
