Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn what ethical therapeutic techniques have been implemented with LGBTQ youth.
  2. use inclusive recruitment and consent procedures for marginalized students such as LGBTQ youth.
  3. get exposure to measures that have monitored progress of LGBTQ youth in therapy.


The purpose of this research was to systematically review therapeutic interventions that have been implemented and evaluated with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ+) youth. A total of n = 4,181 articles were identified in the initial search and n = 21 articles were included in this systematic review. The results of this review present insight on therapeutic techniques, measures used to monitor progress, and recruitment methods from included studies to guide practice with LGBTQ+ youth.
