Many LGBT youth often engage in high risk behaviors at a higher rate than heterosexual youth. However, with appropriate supports and services that are beneficial to lowering risk factors and improving permanency, outcomes improve for this population. The objectives for this training will focus on how personal bias and values influence outcomes for LGBT youth, the importance of parental acceptance to foster healthy LGBT youth developoment, how to use appropriate language in written documents to identify LGBT people, how to identify and address barriers that LGBT youth experience because of bias, discrimination, the relationship between trauma and poor outcomes for many LGBT youth, and how to utilize the six principles of gay affirmative social work.
