Title: LGBTQ+ Youth, Sexual Behavior, and Juvenile Justice


Presenters: Jimmy Widdifield Jr., MA


Date: Tuesday, May 14, 2019


Time: 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT


Description: Youth who identify as LGBTQ+ are at risk for multiple adverse experiences and are overrepresented in the juvenile justice system. Further, when these youth demonstrate sexual behavior, either typical or concerning, they are often perceived as having problematic or illegal sexual behavior and then treated as if a risk to the safety of others and, thus, more likely to become involved in the juvenile justice system. This presentation will present current information on LGBTQ+ youth and juvenile justice and facilitate discussion to help professionals better serve these youth.
