Straight Expectations: Story of a Family in Transition

Peggy tells her personal story of being a mental health professional and the mother of a transgender son. She shares her philosophy of how it’s important to not have straight and rigid expectations of who our children should be if we want them to develop into happy, healthy, and productive members of society. Using humor, compassion, and her personal experience in conjunction with her professional expertise makes this workshop empowering, inspirational, informative, and enjoyable.
