2. Caring for Gender Diverse Youth: Biopsychosocial Integration - Medical Track & Behavioral Health Track
Jason Rafferty, MD, MPH, EdM & Jill Wagner, LCSW

This presentation will review the rational for why gender affirmative care in children and adolescents is fundamentally different from adults. 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 recent changes to the Gender and Sexuality Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital to better meet the biopsychosocial needs of our patients, including collaborative relationships with community partners.

- Appreciate considerations for gender affirmative care in children and adolescents
- Discussed developmental and psychosocial dynamics that may complicate gender affirmative care in youth
- Review one model of integrated gender care that involves interdisciplinary coordination and collaborations across systems.

Elliot M. Ruggles, LCSW, PhD & Jayden Thai, PhD

Along with addressing common concerns, presenters hope to inspire participants into accomplices when considering their relationships with oppressed populations.

- Summarize historical development of Western concepts of gender identity, transgender and cisgender
- Name two ways their own intersecting identities and biases may impact their clinical work with gender diverse clients
- List 3 actions they can take within their clinical practice to move from action to accompliceship with gender diverse clients


4. Interacting with Non-Binary Patients: Introductory Best Practices - Behavioral Health Track & Medical Track
Casey Orozco-Poore, ScB & Ryan Segur, ScB

- Form a basic understanding of non-binary identity
- Introductory best practices will teach providers the basics of interacting with non-binary patients
