*For the purposes of this podcast we will be using the word "Queer" as an umbrella term to include Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender youth. Although this term was once used as derogatory towards LGBT people, many LGBT people - especially youth - have reclaimed this term to recognize the fluidity of gender and sexual identity and as a term of empowerment.
DR. ANNELIESE SINGH
, the President of the Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling; and Assistant Professor of Counseling and Human Development at the University of Georgia. Dr. Singh has presented and published widely on queer youth, queer people of color, and bullying towards LGBTQ youth.
Among other things, Rebecca Daniel-Burke asks the following questions:
- What do counselors need to know about working with queer youth?
- What does the research show about helpful environments in individual counseling and in working with schools to create safe and supportive environments for LGBTQ youth?
- How can you use the ALGBTIC Competencies to support work with LGBTQ youth?
