Many victim service professionals have recognized that members of the LGBTQ community often experience polyvictimization, but did you know data shows victimization typically starts in childhood? LGBTQ children and youth often experience bullying not only in schools, but also at home. This webinar will illuminate how these lifelong victimization patterns start and, more importantly, how adults can easily and safely intervene to make a substantial and long-lasting difference in the life of a bullied LGBTQ child or youth.
