HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Although society’s acceptance of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is increasing, it is crucial for practitioners to recognize and respond to the trauma and victimization these youth are unfortunately often still exposed to throughout their lives. To support 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, trauma-informed care (TIC) is an organizational framework that can help practitioners identify environmental factors that can be stressful for youth, as well as assess risk factors and identify resiliency factors and strengths for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. This document describes the use of TIC with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, and includes:

  • Information and resources on working with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth
  • An introduction to trauma-informed care (TIC) and its use with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth
  • Considerations for practitioners using TIC with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth
