"Working with Gender-Expansive and Transgender Children"
Monday March 16, 2020
from 10:00-11:00am PT
When working with gender-expansive and transgender youth in any capacity, it is crucial to have a compassionate understanding of how one's gender identity or gender expression impacts the child and their ability to be authentic. In this webinar, participants will learn (or review) basic language for discussing and understanding gender-expansive and transgender youth. We will be discussing the differences between and interactions of various aspects of children's gender identity and gender expression. We will be exploring the concept of gender dysphoria, how it impacts transgender youth, and interventions available to them including social transition and beyond. Most importantly, we will be discussing the best ways to support, affirm, and advocate for these young individuals.
