Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth experience trauma at higher rates than their straight peers. Common traumas experienced by these youth include bullying, harassment, traumatic loss, intimate partner violence, physical and sexual abuse, and traumatic forms of societal stigma, bias, and rejection. Further, research detailed in a Harvard University study showed that LGBTQ youth are a high risk for incurring PTSD in particular when compared with cisgender and heteronormative populations. This session will focus on the challenges and traumatic events unique to the LGBTQ community and current best practices in addressing them.
