10 Standards of Care: Improving Services for LGBT Young People

This interactive video featuring American Institutes for Research expert Jeffrey Poirier highlights 10 standards for improving policy and practice for young people who are LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender). This video is intended for all human service systems such as child welfare, education, health, homelessness, juvenile justice, mental health, and substance abuse. Any person can impact change, whether policy makers, program administrators, front-line service providers, family members, youth themselves, or other community members. This interactive video will help you to strengthen policy and practice. The video is organized around 10 standards of practice from Improving Emotional and Behavioral Outcomes for LGBT Youth: A Guide for Professionals (2012). Access the video online.
