Bolstering School Based Support by Comprehensively Addressing the Needs of an Invisible Minority: Implications for Professional School Counselors
Curry, Jennifer R.; Hayes, B. Grant
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n7 2009
The ethical imperative for school counselors to intervene on behalf of marginalized students has been well documented. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth (LGBTQ) have been noted to be at increased risk for school dropout, truancy, lower school achievement, suicidal ideation and attempts, and depression. School counselors are in a unique position to foster the well-being of LGBTQ youth. This manuscript gives concrete strategies for intervening with LGBTQ youth through comprehensive school counseling programming.
