LGBTQ+ Youth
Copyright :


In the last two years several hundred anti-LGBTQ+ bills have been introduced into state legislatures across the United States, most of them targeting gay and transgender young people. Moreover, the American Library Association notes that nearly 2000 requests to remove books from libraries were made last year, the largest number ever reported, and most requests have targeted books with LGBTQ+ content.  It’s no wonder that gay, lesbian and transgender young people feel especially threatened, unsupported, and victimized.  Surveys find that the majority of ‘queer’ youth desire counseling services, putting therapists in an ideal position to help with these fears and anxieties.  In this webinar, you will learn how you can help the LGBTQ+ young people in your practice, your schools and communities – and your own families.
