Abstract

This chapter discusses how gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning (GLBTIQ) youth have been understood in psychology over time, providing key definitions and explaining how early understandings have developed into more recent conceptualizations and practice. Contemporary research data on GLBTIQ students in the primary and secondary years will then be presented, including statistics on experiences of bullying and mental health issues. Finally, the chapter describes the role of the school psychologist in supporting psychological health and well-being for different student groups within the GLBTIQ umbrella, and how this can be mediated against the different expectations in different Australian school contexts. A review of cultural issues for different cultural communities and parents will be provided as well as a case study, some information on training and legal issues, resources, and a quiz.
