Supporting Your Trans Teen

Workshop Description

So you are supportive, using name & pronouns maybe even started medical transition - now
what? Parenting a teen can be very challenging adding the transgender experience to it can
overwhelm a parent. This workshop will give parents insight into the trans/gnc teen and many
different tools to guide the youth into adulthood. We will be working to understand the unique
needs of each youth, finding common ground between youth & parents (caregivers), and
exploring communications skills to best carry our message as parents or caregivers of love and
hope for their future.
