COR May 5th: Beyond the Spectrum: An Orientation to Transgender and Gender Diverse Identities
This presentation will review the rational for why gender affirmative care for children and adolescents is important across medical disciplines. We will discuss developmental considerations, gender fluidity, family involvement, and psychiatric co-morbidities that can arise when working with young populations. In particular, we will introduce concepts and strategies reflecting the evolving biopsychosocial needs of gender diverse patients, including collaborative relationships with community partners.
Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses specializing in Primary Care and Pediatrics.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Improve understanding of gender affirming care for youth and families
- Build understanding of terms and concepts central to understanding and describing the experience of gender diverse youth
- Define the risks associated with and means of preventing gender dysphoria
- Gain appreciation for the unique experiences of gender diverse youth and their families
