University of Groningen Press is excited to announce its latest book publication:
Working with LGBTQIA+ youth in the child welfare system: Perspectives from youth and professionals
edited by Mónica López López (Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences, BSS), Rodrigo González Álvarez (BSS), Mijntje ten Brummelaar (BSS), Kevin R.O. van Mierlo and Leo Wieldraaijer-Vincent.
The book is available open access as PDF or EPUB.
Written through a constant exchange between LGBTQIA+ young people, researchers, professionals and foster families, this book offers a valuable tool to improve the practice with LGBTQIA+ youth at a personal, organizational, and policy level.
This book shows the powerful influence of relationships and networks for the LGBTQIA+ young person growing up in child protection and welfare systems. LGBTQIA+ youth need meaningful connections with individuals within their communities in order to be able to heal, learn, and be authentically themselves.
Child welfare professionals have a crucial role in creating these connections and cultivating supportive environments, free of additional trauma, where LGBTQIA+ young people can feel valued and loved.
