Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) youth (12-24 years) must navigate the typical challenges of adolescence while also managing the social stigma associated with their emerging sexual and gender minority identities. As a result, many LGBT youth are at higher risk for certain behavioral and emotional issues, homelessness, as well as bullying and other forms of victimization. In this webinar, Dr. Rob Garofalo – a nationally-recognized expert on LGBT health and adolescent identity development — discusses the unique health and developmental challenges of LGBT youth, and describes ways to address these issues in the clinical setting. Through sensitive, confidential communication with LGBT youth, clinicians can become a vital source of support for this vulnerable population.
