Lesbian and Gay Youth Issues: A Practical Guide for Youth WorkersBy:
Gerald P. Mallon
This book is designed to help youth care providers increase their knowledge and skills in working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning (GLBTQ) youth and their families in a variety of settings. In an easy-to-read question-and-answer format, the book provides basic information about working with this often invisible population and focuses on important issues surrounding the “coming out” process; family relations; discrimination and antigay violence; creating healthy social environments for GLBTQ youth; relationships and dating; and an array of specific, unique issues for GLBTQ youth and youth workers who work with them in residential, school, health, and mental health settings. It also contains a resource list of readings, videos, websites, and program services.
