Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in America continue to face discrimination in their daily lives. While more states every year work to pass laws to protect LGBTQ people, we continue to see state legislatures advancing bills that target transgender people, limit local protections, and allow the use of religion to discriminate. This session is aimed at promoting therapy and support of LGBTQI+ populations as a public health priority to prevent or reduce behaviors associated with family rejection of LGBTQI+ populations by providing developmentally appropriate support, counseling, or information to parents, families, caregivers, child welfare, and school personnel, or health care professionals on how to support an LGBTQI+ individuals safety and well-being.
