Bullying Among Young Adolescents: The Strong, the Weak and the Troubled: The largest investigation to date on bullying and victimization among urban ethnic minority youth finds that there are significant differences between bullies, victims and students who are both, suggesting that different kinds of intervention are in order. Victims suffer emotional distress, but are unlikely to draw attention to their difficulties. Students who are both bullies and victims are by far the most troubled, socially ostracized by their peers, the least engaged in school and the most likely to display conduct problems. Bullies tend to enjoy high social status among their peers, even though classmates tend to avoid their company: abstract: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/abstract/112/6/1231

Family Rejection as a Predictor of Negative Health Outcomes in White and Latino Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Young Adults. - Caitlin Ryan, et al. PEDIATRICS Vol. 123 No. 1 January 2009, pp. 346-352 (doi:10.1542/peds.2007-3524) This study establishes a clear link between specific parental and caregiver rejecting behaviors and negative health problems in young lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults. Providers who serve this population should assess and help educate families about the impact of rejecting behaviors. Counseling families, providing anticipatory guidance, and referring families for counseling and support can help make a critical difference in helping decrease risk and increasing well-being for lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth.

Gender and Sexuality 101 (pdf file) - by Caryn B. Oppenheim with support from Safe Schools Coalition. This is a sixteen page report with chapters on "Fluidity, Categorization, and Vocabulary" - “Coming Out” - "Language and Homophobia" - "Intersections of Identity" - "Testimonies" and "International Perspectives."
"Schools should be a community where students, peers, friends, teachers, and families work together to support the well being and growth of children in a holistic manner. The writing and compilation of this booklet serves several purposes. First, through exposing high school students to ideas that they may not encounter until college, I wish to mitigate homophobia. ... It is my hope that the ideas conveyed in this packet will expand the way people think about gender and sexuality, diminishing the gap between “us” and “them”. Secondly, I encourage a dialogue between students, teachers, and parents about the issues covered in this booklet."

Study demonstrates the academic importance of role models: A study published in the January 2002 issue of the journal Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, which didn't address sexual orientation directly, did demonstrate, among other findings, that "Having a role model, particularly an individual known to the adolescent, was also associated with higher self-esteem (P<.001) and higher grades (P<.05)."

Using Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Youth Data from the Oregon Healthy Teens Survey to Address Health Inequities: Based on the 2007 Oregon Healthy Teens Survey, this PowerPoint presentation:
http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/LGBdata-fromOregonHealthyTeensFinal.ppt -
shares findings, reaches these conclusions:

  • Sexuality is fluid and difficult to categorize with discrete labels.
  • Almost 12% of Oregon 11th graders identify as LGBQ or have had same-sex sexual contact.
  • It appears there are significant differences among LGBQ youth, but small numbers necessitate combining the groups for analyses.
  • Many youth who challenge heterosexual norms experience harassment and violence and are more likely to struggle with poor mental health, smoking and other drug use, and unsafe sexual behavior.
  • It's important to take these problems seriously, but we shouldn't only dwell on negative outcomes.
  • The report also makes recommendations for researchers, policy-makers, and program planners.

Vulnerability to Violence Among Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Youth: by Patricia Boland, NCSP for the National Association of School Psychologists: http://www.nasponline.org/NEAT/neat_vulnerability.html

We Are ... GBLTQ - a 42 minute DVD that was produced by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Children’s Administration, the Washington State Department of Information Services, and director/Project Coordinator, Evonne Hedgepeth, Ph.D. - Lifespan Education, (Phone / Fax: 360-352-9980, evonne@lifespaneducation.com) who is available to consult (curricula writing, trainings, program design, etc.) and may be available to speak with the film at training events and conferences around the country. This is easily the BEST video about LGBTQ youth in recent memory. It’s about LGBTQ youth in foster care, featuring the wonderfully articulate, diverse voices of a dozen or so LGBTQ current and former foster kids, with guest appearances by some adult experts. It’s an excellent training tool intended for case workers, foster parents and others serving out-of-home youth, but absolutely great too for school counselors, nurses, social workers, teachers, physicians, parents …any adult who cares about youth…and for any youth in the child welfare system.
