When It’s Not So Clear Cut: Complicated Case Studies

Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 1:30 PM–2:50 PM PDT
J West
Workshop Description

It may go without saying that a person’s gender identity exploration can be challenging. Additional variables that accompany any single person’s journey may add layers of complexity that make it difficult for providers to know what issue or area to tackle, when or even if. These variables may include multiple mental and medical health diagnoses, varying degrees of parental support, access to care and/or resources, etc. This will be a facilitated round table conversation to explore any specific cases where the course of action is unclear or complex.
Note: This is a providers-only session.
