LGBTQ Youth Issues: A Practical Guide for Youth Workers Serving Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth

Paperback
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? .
