TL;DR: Family acceptance of LGBT adolescents is associated with positive young adult mental and physical health and interventions that promote parental and caregiver acceptance ofLGBT adolescents are needed to reduce health disparities.
Abstract: ISSUE: The role of family acceptance as a protective factor for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adolescents and young adults has not been established. METHODS: A quantitative measure with items derived from prior qualitative work retrospectively assessed family accepting behaviors in response to LGBT adolescents' sexual orientation and gender expression and their relationship to mental health, substance abuse, and sexual risk in young adults (N= 245). FINDINGS: Family acceptance predicts greater self-esteem, social support, and general health status; it also protects against depression, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation and behaviors. CONCLUSIONS: Family acceptance of LGBT adolescents is associated with positive young adult mental and physical health. Interventions that promote parental and caregiver acceptance of LGBT adolescents are needed to reduce health disparities.
TL;DR: The employment of an integrative biosocial perspective is argued to be important in understanding this behavior and the risk factors underlying them are essential to prevent them.
Abstract: TOPIC. Childhood externalizing behavior PURPOSE.

SOURCES. A review of the literature based on psychological, psychiatric, and nursing journals. CONCLUSIONS. A better understanding of childhood externalizing behavior problems and the risk factors underlying them are essential to prevent them. The employment of an integrative biosocial perspective is argued to be important in understanding this behavior.
TL;DR: Systemic orientation for all children entering foster care is proposed as a preventative intervention that addresses associated experiences of children in foster care.
Abstract: TOPIC: Nationally, 542,000 children are in foster care. Many of these children have prior histories of maltreatment such as abuse and neglect, with neglect being the most common form of maltreatment and the reason for many children requiring foster care services. Painful experiences associated with maltreatment and the trauma of being removed from one's parents (foster care) may affect the developmental and mental health of children. PURPOSE: This paper synthesizes the experiences associated with foster care and reveals foster care outcomes obtained through a literature search of published research. Specifically, the notions of oppression and domination defined by Young (1990) experienced by children in foster are explored. SOURCES: Review of the literature and clinical practice. CONCULSIONS: Most children in foster care, if not all, experience feelings of confusion, fear, apprehension of the unknown, loss, sadness, anxiety, and stress. Such feelings and experiences must be addressed and treated early to prevent or decrease poor developmental and mental health outcomes that ultimately affect a child's educational experience and the quality of adulthood. Systemic orientation for all children entering foster care is proposed as a preventative intervention that addresses associated experiences of children in foster care.
TL;DR: The findings indicate that electronic communication technology influences dating violence by redefining boundaries between dating partners.
Abstract: PROBLEM: Adolescent dating violence and electronic aggression are significant public health problems. The purpose of this study was to (a) identify ways in which technology is used in dating violence and (b) present examples of dating violence in which electronic aggression played a salient role. METHODS: The data set included the transcribed narratives of 56 young adults who had described their adolescent dating violence experiences for an on going study. FINDINGS: Eight ways in which technology is used in dating violence were identified using qualitative descriptive methods. CONCLUSIONS: The findings indicate that electronic communication technology influences dating violence by redefining boundaries between dating partners. Language: en
