2018 SUMMER INSTITUTE MINI-COURSE
LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE
TREATING GENDER NON-CONFORMING CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS
Instructor: Kim S. Kleinman, LCSW, MS
The knowledge base concerning the development of gender non-conforming people has expanded exponentially in the last ten years. This course will survey the history of treating gender variant children and help to identify what type of developmental help can be tailored to the particular child in our office. We will also discuss the path toward the development of a positive gender identity for a child who experiences themselves as different. What are the issues related to “puberty blockers.” What are the issues around gender transitioning? What are the social skills necessary for the development of resilience for a child that may experience social negativity about their gender expression? In this course the participants will be able to identify: phases of the development of a gender identity, identify the pros and cons of medical/surgical interventions, and will easily disambiguate gender identity and sexual object choice.
