Description 

 

This training is a beginner’s introduction to information about child, adolescent, and family experiences of gender identity. This training explores the value of clarifying terms related to sex, gender, and identity with children, adolescents, and their caregivers. A description of historical, cultural and DSM conceptualizations of gender identity will be reviewed. We will review theories of explanation for Gender Dysphoria and value-based frameworks for understanding variance in gender identity. Participants will apply assessment considerations, along with legal and ethical considerations to inform treatment for Gender Dysphoria and related conditions. The influence of the caregivers’ personal values and framework for understanding gender identity on their relationship with their gender-questioning child will be explored. Creative interventions to facilitate expression and exploration of gender identity questions in therapy with adolescents and their families will be explained.
