STAND UP, SPEAK OUT: Addressing Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues Facing Youth and Finding Opportunities to Promote Safe Environments
A workshop for Social Workers

FREE for NASW Members/$40 for Non-members
Lunch is provided (please indicate in the RSVP section if you would like a vegetarian or gluten-free option)

NASW's third annual Tom Mulder Memorial Lunch and Lecture will include a screening of the film Bullied: A student, a school, and a case that made history, followed by a moderated discussion and presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation issues facing youth

Compared to their peers, LGBT youth are

  • Two to three times more likely to be bullied
  • Up to four times more likely to attempt suicide
  • Seven times more likely to miss a day of school because they feel unsafe and are more likely to experience physical  bullying

What is the climate like for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community?  Research has shown that individuals dealing with coming out issues (sexual orientation and/or gender identity) are at a much higher risk of suicide and other self-destructive behaviors.  This discussion will share information about macro and mico level issues and concerns facing the LGBT community, particularly youth.  

Presenter C. Kai Medina-Martinez, LCSW is the Director of the LGBT Resource Center at the University of Utah, and has over 18 years experience in the field of social work.  In addition to their position at the LGBT Resource Center, they have a small private practice where they specialize in LGBTQ issues.  They are also a doctoral candidate in Education Leadership and Policy, and they teach graduate courses in social work.  They consult locally and nationally about best practices when working with LGBTQ individuals.
