Abstract

Within the scope of available research regarding bullying and sexual harassment of LGBTQ teens, there are substantial gaps in understanding the perspectives of trauma affected LGBTQ youth. This study explored the perspectives of three individuals who identify as LGBTQ and who experienced bullying and peer victimization during a formative stage, typically, in a high school setting. Through interviewing the three subjects the researchers were able to identify mental health concerns including symptoms of depression and anxiety as well the positive and negative coping mechanisms used by participants. Results from this study can help with identifying mental health needs and add to trauma sensitive understanding of how bullying and sexual harassment specifically relate to LGBTQ teens for the development of proactive treatment modalities.
