Course Description: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer (LGBQ) youth are at a heightened risk for depression compared to their heterosexual peers. Research is needed to identify modifiable risk and protective factors for depression in this vulnerable population in order to develop more effective prevention and treatment strategies. Results indicate that risk and protective factors exist at multiple levels of influence. Prominent risk factors for depression include maladaptive coping, parental rejection, negative interpersonal interactions, negative religious experiences, school bullying victimization, and violence victimization in community settings. Prominent protective factors include a positive LGBQ identity, self-esteem, social support from friends, and family support.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the minority stress theory and how it explains risk for depression among LGBQ youth.
  2. Identify one modifiable risk factor at the individual, interpersonal and social/environmental level of influence.
  3. Identify one modifiable protective factor at the individual, interpersonal and social/environmental level of influence.

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Psychosocial risk and protective factors for depression among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer youth: A systematic review
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the risk and protective factors that exist at the psychological, relationship and social/environmental levels of influence as it relates to risk of depression among LGBQ youth
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand how personal and environmental factors contribute to depression risk in LGBQ youth populations
