all of the above
only the 1st and 2nd answers
'Transgender' refers to individuals who
have undergone a sex change operation.
express a gender identity different from their birth-assigned gender.

Two-Spirit (2-S)
is a culture-specific general identity for Native Americans (American Indians and Alaska Natives) with homosexual or transgendered identities.

both of the above
Youth who are LGBTQI2-S are part of a distinctive cultural group which includes a defined set of norms, social events, styles, and use of language.
True False
There are ample programs and services that are tailored for LGBTQI2-S youth and their families, and thus there is no reason for an adolescent to fear 'coming out' or seeking support.
True False
Moving to 'Recommendations and Strategies': Which statement below is NOT a recommended approach to developing a constructive environment for LGBTQI2-S youth?
Ensure that staff have a high level of awareness of LGBTQI2-S issues.
Services should be linguistically competent (e.g., welcoming and nonjudgmental, respectful of preferred terms for sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and offered in sign language and in languages other than English)
Display symbols of support for LGBTQI2-S issues within offices and public areas, such as hanging rainbow flags or pink triangles on agency walls and in windows.
Maintain confidentiality and privacy of all youth self-disclosures (particularly when youth share their LGBTQI2-S identity) to protect them from victimization, stigma, abuse, and discrimination.
Insist that LGBTQI2-S youth bring their legal guardians and siblings into the service setting before services are provided.
Offering services and supports to the entire family unit
may seem like a good idea; but families need to obtain understanding and acceptance of their child’s sexual orientation or gender identity on their own - otherwise the youth's treatment may be compromised
helps families who may be struggling with understanding or accepting their child’s sexual orientation or gender identity, and may also be seeking resources or supports.
Social networking and online LGBTQI2-S resources can be an effective substitute for having direct contact with a supportive individual.
True False
Requiring youth who are transgender or non-gender to identify their sex or a male-female gender identity on agency forms - with no option for 'other' - is especially problematic when youth are in crisis.
True False
Unless the youth confides information about LGBTQI2-S status, we should assume that he or she is heterosexual.
True False
When we become aware that a youth identifies as LGBTQI2-S, we should assume that the youth is distressed or troubled about their LGBTQI2-S identity, in order to facilitate discussion.
True False
It is important to understand that
mental health challenges experienced by LGBTQI2-S youth are typically caused by their LGBTQI2-S status.
some mental health challenges experienced by youth who are LGBTQI2-S are independent of their LGBTQI2-S identity.
The most effective way for staff to become educated about the health and medical issues of transgender youth is to listen and learn from the youth who have self-identified as transgender.
True False
Although we should create a safe environment for youth who are transgender or do not identify as male or female, these youth need to adjust to gendered bathroom facilities.
True False
From one community to another, beliefs and norms about persons who are LGBTQI2-S
are essentially the same, and we can therefore utilize a consistent approach to development of service programs across communities.
differ significantly based on both cultural and geographic factors, and thus services should be planned accordingly.
Agency planners
should not become involved in providing a meeting place for youth who are LGBTQI2-S, because to do so may be perceived as 'controlling' and intrusive.
should provide a community center or other 'safe' meeting place for youth who are LGBTQI2-S to obtain needed information and to interact socially.
Social Networking websites offer many online resources to LGBTQI2-S youth, but there are very few online resources available to professionals who are seeking training and tools for working with LGBTQI2-S youth and their families.
True False

Professionals must let LGBTQI2-S children and youth choose when to come out and to whom.
