Sexual Minority Youth Professional Resources 

Youth who identify as LGBTQ+ are a higher risk of being identified as having a problematic sexual behavior due to caregivers, professionals, and others' perceptions that developmentally appropriate and legal sexual behavior involving non-heterosexual, non-cisgender, and/or gender diverse youth is aberrant and, this, problematic. This handout lists common resources to promote best practices with LGBTQ+ youth.

National Center on the Sexual Behavior of Youth™

The mission of NCSBY™ is to promote better lives, through better choices™ by youth, caregivers, and professionals for healthier responses to and prevention of problematic sexual behavior of youth. NCSBY™ provides national training and technical assistance to improve the accuracy, accessibility, and strategic use of accurate information about the nature, incidence, prevalence, prevention, treatment, and management of youth with problematic sexual behavior.

Parent Resources
These newsletters are written for parents and other caregivers, such as grandparents, foster parents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, and others who are taking care of children of all ages.  We write this series of newsletters to share support, to let you know you are not alone, and to give hope.  Although we may not know your story, we have experience and understand the impact of children's problematic sexual behaviors on caregivers, youth, the family, and others.
For this inaugural issue, we want to focus on keeping all kids safe by preventing problematic sexual behavior through parenting, staying vigilant, and maintaining open communication.
For this issue, we want to focus on treatment for families with children or teens with concerning or problematic sexual behaviors.  Our goal is to provide assistance as to how to initiate services and discuss what treatment should entail. 
While it's expected that you're having lots of different emotions right now, basing all responses to your child's behavior on fear or anger can make it difficult to move forward.  Managing your own stress is essential.  We've been there too!  In this moment, we want to make sure you hear, "This is not your fault".  What your child has done does not define who they are or make you a "bad" caregiver.  While it may not feel like it right now, your family will get through this.
Youth Resources
One of the main priorities of the Youth Partnership Board (YPB) is to share with other youth who are beginning a treatment program the insights that helped them through the treatment process.  Successful engagement in treatment is a critical step in healing for everyone impacted.

One of the main priorities of YPB is to share with other youth and their families who are at any stages of the treatment process the insights and understandings that helped them heal and move forward.  
English PDF
We write this to share that the first few moments, visits, and interactions you have with a youth are critical to establishing a therapeutic relationship with them.  Be aware of and closely examine the verbal and non-verbal messages that are conveyed by you, your colleagues, and even the facility in which services are provided.  All these things express how you perceive the youth and what the family can expect from you and the agency.
