This webinar is designed to teach social workers and clinicians skills to provide evidence-based mental health services to transgender and gender diverse youth in the context of the youth’s family. When transgender youth “come out” to parents it is often a vulnerable moment in the family dynamic. Parents may not know how to respond to their child’s transgender identity or may feel at a loss as to how to support their child in their gender transition. Some parents may respond negatively and say or do things that damage the parent-child relationship. Understanding and navigating these vulnerable moments, will be addressed in this workshop.
This workshop will be interactive and will include case studies. Participants will review a working definition of terms, including transgender, gender identity, gender expression, intersex, gender nonconforming, non-binary, gender transition and ally. Language and terminology will be examined with emphasis on using affirming language and avoiding offensive terminology. This webinar will also examine the risk and protective factors that impact transgender youth. Psychoeducation and developmental guidance for parents of gender diverse youth will be discussed. Finally, participants will explore evidence-based clinical interventions in the context of the family.
