Culture and Trauma Brief: Trauma Among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Questioning Youth
More and more, today’s youth are self identifying as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or openly questioning (LGBTQ) their sexual attractions and gender identity. There is an urgent need to ensure that comprehensive and culturally competent social and mental health services and resources are available for LGBTQ youth. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network promotes culturally competent trauma treatments and practices for children and adolescents exposed to trauma, and disseminates its findings through factsheets, culture and trauma briefs, and reports.
