Emerging Best Practices for the Management and Treatment of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Intersex Youth in Juvenile Justice Settings


The Fenway Institute

Résumé

The overrepresentation of LGBTQI youth in the juvenile justice system means it is critically important that juvenile justice professionals are educated about the LGBTQI youth in their facilities and their particular vulnerabilities and needs. Research shows that professionals often greatly underestimate the number of LGBT youth in their care and control. Indeed, up to 20% of youth in the juvenile justice system are LGBT, although LGBT youth comprise just 7-8% of the general population. Understanding the factors that bring LGBTQI youth into the system, including extensive trauma and higher rates of homelessness, is essential for juvenile justice professionals to develop and implement effective treatment plans for these youth. A better understanding of the specific needs and vulnerabilities of these youth also better equips staff to address potential security and safety issues before they arise, creating better run and more secure facilities generally.
