“It Takes a Village:" Supporting Transgender and Gender Diverse Children and Youth and Their Families

This workshop will focus on ways to intervene with parents struggling to understand their child’s needs as well as their own. We will look at the history underpinning our current notions regarding gender and gender identity development. We will also explore the intersections of gender diversity and neurodiversity, particularly the overlap of the autism spectrum with the gender spectrum, presenting the most recent research findings in this area as well as therapeutic guidelines for working with gender diverse autistic children, youth, and their families.

Professionals' Night: Supporting Trans & Gender Diverse Youth

Professionals involved in direct service delivery for youth (e.g., psychologists, social workers, educators, administrators, family physicians and other medical practitioners) are increasingly likely to encounter gender diversity in the clients and patients they serve.

Yet many professionals report feeling under-equipped to provide competent care and support for transgender and gender diverse youth.

Join us for an evening with child psychologist Ashleigh Yule, who will explore evidence-based practical strategies to create safer and more inclusive professional services for trans and gender diverse youth.
