SCY Training: Understanding Victimization of and Violence Among LGBTQ Youth

Please join us for this training that will cover the portraits and patterns of violence, discussing similarities and differences between LGBTQ and heterosexual youth, specifically assessing the violence experienced by LGBTQ youth and the barriers involved.  In addition, this training will include a discussion of intervention models, resources available, and policy related issues, specifically in terms of the Public Act 098-0669 (school bullying law).  Public Act 098-0669, which was signed into law in June and effective immediately, clarifies current law by integrating specific recommendations of 2010 Illinois School Bullying Prevention Task Force, which determined that schools needed more guidance.  This law defines "policy on bullying," allows for data collection, and supports local control.
