Supporting Children and Teens in Gender-Affirmative Care—June 14, 2018

Transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) youth seeking gender-affirmative medical and mental health services must make their way through a complicated healthcare system while engaging with numerous providers and, of course, their families. This workshop provides information about how parental support and validation mitigate the challenges of navigating the spectrum of care available to TGNC youth. A panel discussion with Pelisyonkis Langone specialists in transgender healthcare and adolescent medicine—including Dr. Aron C. Janssen, Dr. Samantha Busa, social worker Jeremy Wernick, and Dr. Lara Brodzinsky—helps providers and families effectively support and prepare TGNC youth for engagement in gender-affirmative services.

Presenters: Aron C. Janssen, MD, Samantha Busa, PsyD, Jeremy Wernick, LMSW, and Lara Brodzinsky, PsyD
