About the Course:
It is often difficult for LGBTQ youths to obtain quality community resources in rural areas where LGBTQ stigma is high. This quantitative study explores the influence of self-guided online writing interventions on the behavioral health of LGBTQ youth living in rural Tennessee. Data on depressive symptoms, anxious symptoms, suicidal ideation, drug/alcohol use, and HIV-risk behavior are collected immediately after the interventions and at three months post-interventions.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Brief Online Interventions for LGBTQ Young Adult Mental and Behavioral Health: A Randomized Controlled Trial in a High-Stigma, Low-Resource Context created by John E. Pachankis, PhD, et al. in 2020.
Publication Date:J Consult Clin Psychol. 2020 May; 88(5): 429–444 May 2020
