Creating Safe and Supportive

Edited by Emily S. Fisher of Loyola Marymount University and Karen Komosa-Hawkins of Chapman University, Creating Safe and Supportive Learning Environments: A Guide for Working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth and Families provides educators and mental health workers with comprehensive information on how to successfully work with sexual and gender diverse student populations. The book is divided into two parts. First, a historical background on sexual and gender minority students in the education system is provided, as well as a theoretical background on biological and psychological development. The second section contains information on current U.S law and policy that protects the safety of gender and sexual minority students. Lesson plans for teachers and mental health workers to create more inclusive schools for LGBTQ students are also included.
