Description

Youth from racial/ethnic, sexual, and gender minority groups have significant disparities in health and mental health outcomes. While the literature suggests that evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapies benefit youth and families with minority or marginalized status, less research has focused specifically on these populations in pediatric behavioral health care. Existing evidence pointing to the potential positive impact of pediatric psychologists working with marginalized communities including racial/ethnic minority and LGBTQ youth will be reviewed, along with a brief discussion of the relevance of culturally adapted or tailored interventions in pediatric behavioral health care. Important considerations for practitioners working with minority or marginalized youth and families will be discussed, including issues of mistrust, stigma, and accessibility of services.
