School safety experiences of high school youth across sexual orientation and gender identity.

Authors: Brittanie Atteberry-Ash, Shanna K. Kattari, Stephanie Rachel Speer, Samantha Guz and Leo Kattari
Format: Article
Summary: Examines the differential experiences of school safety when looking at the various intersections of sexual orientation and gender identity using the 2015 Healthy Kids Colorado Study of 11,986 secondary school students. Findings highlight that feeling safe at school, bullying and skipping school due to feeling unsafe are shared experiences, especially among lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and transgender young people, and these experiences are differentially based on the intersection of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Bullying in residential care for children: qualitative findings from five European countries.


Authors: Angela Mazzone, Annalaura Nocentini and Ersilia Menesini
Format: Article
Summary: Investigates the perspectives of 123 children in care and 95 staff members about bullying in residential care settings in five European countries (Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy and Romania).
