Safe Spaces. Safe Places: Creating Welcoming and Inclusive Environments for Traumatized LGBTQ Youth
The NCTSN Child Sexual Abuse committee has created a new video that highlights the effect of trauma on LGBTQ youth, describes how bias impedes optimal care, and provides practical steps for creating safe and welcoming environments for traumatized LGBTQ youth. The video features five LGBTQ youth describing how trauma and bias have affected their ability to feel safe when seeking services and NCTSN presenters sharing specific steps that professionals and organizations can take to create safer and more welcoming environments for LGBTQ youth who have experienced trauma.
