Supporting the Whole Family through Transition

Trans youth experience many unique challenges during transition.  Everything from dealing with peers and parents to secondary sex characteristics and typical issues of adolescence become major impediments to development.  It is imperative for healthcare professionals to take into account the relevant systemic variables—family, friends, siblings, school, spiritual affiliation, extracurricular activities, and medical community—with which the young person interacts.  This workshop will examine the primary clinician’s role in supporting a minor and their family members as they navigate their way through these complex systems.
