Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Building bridges: A specialized training program for professionals in school settings to address bullying in LGBTQ youth: A grant proposal
by Acosta, Joanna, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 62; 1523158
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this proposal was to seek funding to help The American Civil Liberties Union LGBTQ Student Rights Project provide a sensitivity training to the Los Angeles County School District school professionals who work with LGBTQ youth who are being bullied or at risk of bullying. School bullying has been a new issue identified to society. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth are specific targets to bullying. Bullying in those who identify as LGBTQ may face life-threatening consequences such as depression and suicide. The grant writer selected The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation as a funding source for the proposed project. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for successful completion of this thesis project.
