Working with LGBTQ Youth: From Understanding to Advocacy

This session will provide participants with a better understanding of the challenges faces by LGBTQ youth. By applying a sociological lens, participants will explore how social constructs of and expectations surrounding gender and sexuality can impact youth experiences, particularly in the already tumultuous time period of adolescence. Special attention will be paid to the experiences of transgender and gender nonconforming youth. The session will explore an overview of how gender and sexuality can impact involvement with the criminal justice system, substance abuse, and violence victimization. Participants will be provided with practical suggestions for improving their own practice with LGBTQ youth populations, helping them move towards not only understanding but advocacy for their LGBTQ clients.
