Safe and Respected: Policy, Best Practices, and Guidance for Serving Transgender, Gender Expansive, & Non-Binary Children and Youth Involved in the Child Welfare, Detention, and Juvenile Justice Systems

By New York Administration for Children's Services, 2017

Like the 2014 guide, this most recent edition exists to improve New York City’s child welfare and juvenile justice services for TNB children and youth. After reviewing the guide, practitioners will gain awareness of each youth’s gender journey, increase knowledge as to why TNB children and youth continue to remain overrepresented in these systems, and receive guidance on how to fulfill professional responsibilities as outlined in New York City’s Human Rights Act and in the relevant workplace policies outlined by the Administration for Children’s Services.
