A Trauma-Informed approach to working with LGBTQ+ youth and families.
Research shows that LGBTQ youth experience trauma at a higher rate than their non-LGBTQ peers. Knowing that, how can service providers offer a trauma-informed level of care that meets the needs of this community?

 Understand lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth and the unique challenges they often face

 Explore the effects of trauma in working with LGBTQ youth and their families

 Develop practical guidelines to providing a trauma-informed, culturally-competent level of care in working with LGBTQ youth and their families
