FAMILY PERSPECTIVE Introduction When a parent knows something has changed

Now that we know, whats next? Advocating and protecting your child CIT Law Enforcements role? WHY LGBTQIA+ in CIT?

Police have gone from "NIGHT WATCHMEN" to highlevel judgment and decision-making representatives of our local, state, and government law enforcement agencies. Police encounter members of the LGBTQIA+ community in 9-1-1 calls, encounters with the homeless, work peers, providing protection for First Amendment demonstrations, and personal or family lives. Education on this topic is timely, important, and critical to maintaining a CIT program adequately adapting to change. LEARNING OBJECTIVE 1

Understand crisis elements of the LBGTQIA+ community which may lead to law enforcement encounters. A look at suicide rates, and other disparities among LBGTQIA+ youth. Encounters Check on the Well-being

Family domestics Coming out Crisis Anxiety Rejection

may equal rage/violence Statistics 26% of LGBTQ youth in care were forced to leave their homes as a result of revealing their sexuality. National Statistic: 78% of LGBTQ youth were removed or ran away from foster placements as a result of hostility toward their sexual orientation or gender identity. On a national average, up to 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer or questioning. 50% of transgender youth have seriously contemplated suicide, and 1 in 4

have reported having made an attempt. Negative outcomes for many LGBT youth, can be prevented or reduced if parents, families, and caregivers can turn to a knowledgeable source for guidance, accurate information, and support. Family Rejection & Health Risks (Ryan et al., 2010) LGBT young adults who reported high levels of family rejection during adolescence were: 8.4 times more likely to report having attempted suicide 5.9 times more likely to report high levels of depression 3.4 times more likely to use illegal drugs 3.4 times more likely to report having engaged in unprotected sexual intercourse

compared with peers from families that reported no or low levels of family rejection When I put my head on the pillow at night, I think about my daughter and just hope shes safe. I dont know where she is. I havent heard from her since I threw her out of the house when she told me she was lesbian. I didnt know what to do. I wish I had acted differently. I would give anything to be able to change that now.-Monica, mother of 16-year old lesbian youth LEARNING OBJECTIVE 2

How people describe themselves is important Vocabulary is important for showing respect and gaining trust (review vocabulary) LEARNING OBJECTIVE 3

What you see is not necessarily what you get Rigid binary constructs common in our culture lead to discrimination We have all been taught to think in the binary so we need to practice being more flexible in our

understanding of sexual orientation (SO) and gender identity and expression (GIE) What makes us who we are? and how we express ourselves LEARNING OBJECTIVES -Did we meet these? Understand crisis elements of the LBGTQIA+ community which may
