    Description:

    Transgender youth are among the least served, most at-risk members of society due to lack of affirming mental health services as well as the frequency of school and family rejection. The availability of culturally sensitive, evidence-based direct mental health care is life affirming and life saving! Mental health providers need to understand the basic elements of a gender transition—legal, social, and medical as well as the elements of delivering gender-affirming care to transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) youth and families. In this workshop, language and terminology will be examined, as well as multiple risk factors that impact transgender youth from a solution-focused lens. Family relationship dynamics, along with strategies to increase family support, will be explored with an emphasis on increasing parental capacity to support transgender youth. This workshop will also cover specific concerns that apply to TGNC children younger than age 13, such as understanding gender identify at younger ages, along with specific facts about working within elementary and preschool settings and offering long-term guidance and planning recommendations to parents and children that are developmentally appropriate.
