Presenter: Hannah Kimbrough, Brittany Murphy, and Ashley Brown Ruiz
Topic/Audience: Transgender & Gender Diverse (TGD) Adults, Parents / Caregivers, Non-Binary (NB), Trans Feminine, Trans Masculine, Transgender & Gender Diverse (TGD) High Schoolers

Trusting ourselves or other people is a vulnerable and courageous process. How do we talk about trust with the ones we love?

Trust is a huge part of the human experience. Without trust, there can be no real connection, no love, no vulnerability, no belonging.

There is a need to operationalize trust – what are the pieces that come together to build trust. Are there elements of trust that we can talk about specifically – behaviors that we can change?

Join us for an interactive session that teaches how to use the BRAVING acronym to examine trust within ourselves and with others.

Difficult Medical Decisions for Non-binary Youth

Presenter: Lisa Griffin, Ph.D.
Topic/Audience: Child Welfare, Mental Health, Medical, Parents/Caregivers

CEU

With increased transgender visibility and acceptance, providers are seeing an explosion of variety in terms of how transgender, gender-diverse, and gender-nonconforming children and teens present in clinical settings. Puberty blockers followed by hormones has become the standard regimen for unambiguously binary-identified trans kids. A question that has become increasingly urgent, however, is the following: in the absence of a strong binary identity, what is the appropriate medical approach with youth who experience their genders differently from the majority of those assigned to their gender? With non-binary identities being available and increasingly embraced, do puberty blockers and subsequent hormones make sense for these youth? If not, how do we square this with research supporting early medical intervention for better social and emotional outcomes? These are complicated questions with huge implications for these kids’ futures. The presentation will be followed by ample opportunity for participant discussion.

Parenting A Transgender Teenager: “Help!! It Seems Like Everything I Say To My Child Is Wrong!”

Presenter: Aydin Olson-Kennedy, MSW
Topic/Audience: Child Welfare, Mental Health, Education, Parents / Caregivers

CEU

Many parents feel helpless in the face of the pain and emotional distress that gender dysphoria causes and focus their energy on fixing rather than really listening. Seeing your child in pain makes fixing hard to resist, but as many parents know, attempts to fix their child’s pain seems to only makes things worse. In this workshop, we will discuss and practice techniques to improve communication and parent/child relationships that focuses on validating, empathizing, and holding.

Workshop 2 • 10:35 – 11:50 AM

Presenter: Lisa Griffin, Ph.D.
Topic/Audience: CLOSED for Transgender & Gender Diverse (TGD) High School Students

Being a trans teen involves unique challenges.

This workshop will offer teens alternative ways to manage anxiety, dysphoria, and challenges in their social environments. Participants will learn the importance of positive self-talk and self-leadership as well as body-focused anxiety-reduction techniques. This workshop is limited to trans teens only.

Once Upon a Time: On Sharing Your Naming Story

Presenter: Daniel Phillip, PsyD
Audience: Closed for Transgender and Gender Diverse Participants

CLOSED Session: No Professional Credits

Our identities can be influenced by the names we are given at birth. For queer and trans folk, the renaming process can be empowering, as it provides a sense of ownership of one aspect of identity. This feeling of empowerment can be especially helpful in identity exploration, which is posited as a crucial stage in the development of people with varied sexual and gender identities (Bockting & Coleman, 2007; Cass, 1979; 1984; Fassinger, 1998; Lev, 2004). In this workshop, participants will increase their understanding of the connection between identity exploration and the naming process, will share the story behind their names, and will create their own scripts for developing similar tools when working with individuals or groups.

Through relating their personal stories, this panel of parents will share their process of deciding when and how their youth would proceed down the path of surgical intervention.

Transition and the Checklist: Exploring the Internal and External Journey

Presenter: Aydin Olson-Kennedy, MSW
Topic/Audience: Parents / Caregivers

CEU • CME

Social transition, puberty blockers, hormones, document changes…the list that comprises the “to do’s” for transgender individuals and their families is long. It can be compelling and comforting to believe that there is a checklist to follow for transition and that once these tasks are crossed off, the journey is complete and life can get back to “normal.” This workshop aims to present and discuss that not every transition follows a checklist and that the experiences that occur in between the elements on the list are often neglected in conversations with family members, partners, therapists, doctors and others.

CEU • CME • Ethics

Research findings and clinical observations are documenting a significant correlation between children and youth creatively exploring their gender and children and youth who find themselves on the autism spectrum. Some of those children are doubted for the authenticity of their gender explorations; others may be mistakenly placed on the autism spectrum when they do not belong there. This workshop will examine the relationship between neurodiversity and gender diversity, with the goals of 1) identifying stable gender affirmations among children who have been identified on the autism spectrum, 2) understanding the unique pathways these children may take in their gender journey, 3) considering the possibility that some children with gender stresses may be misdiagnosed as having Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. Ehrensaft will also present her observations of gender as a cure for autism-related stresses, and will invite audience participation regarding people’s own observations, either as clinician, parents, or allies, about children and youth who qualify as “double helix rainbow kids.”

Feminizing Surgeries

A Grandparent’s Look at Transgender Through Different Eyes.
Sylvester Neal
Topic/Audience: All

CEU • CME

As a grandparent and legal guardian, I struggled to understand the challenges my trans granddaughter was facing. Once I learned to separate gender identity from sexual orientation, I began to see the transgender issue as simply one of diversity: How do we treat people who are different? I have learned that when we look at this issue through the eyes of a child, they simply want to be recognized for who they are. I can now see that my love and support is critical for her survival and well-being. If we look through the eyes of the legal system, it prohibits her discrimination. In my State, she can use the bathroom of the gender in which she identifies. But most of all, it is my Christian lenses which commands that I love everyone. Only then can we can move beyond the Golden Rule, which is to “treat others as you want to be treated” to a higher standard of the Platinum Rule, which requires us to “treat people the way ‘they’ want to be treated”.

Not Quite Cis, Not Quite Trans: Social & Medical Gatekeeping of Autism

Presenter: Elliott Gustafson, Megan Hack, Samantha Hack, & Ragen Roberts
Topic/Audience: Child Welfare, Education, Mental Health, Research, Transgender & Gender Diverse (TGD) Adults, Parents / Caregivers, POC, Adult Allies, Non-Binary (NB), Trans Feminine, Trans Masculine, Neurodiversity, Healthcare Providers, Mental Health Providers, Transgender & Gender Diverse (TGD) High School Students

CEU

Autistics experience gender dysphoria at an increased rate, while also facing increased stigma due to the perception that they inherently lack "theory of mind" - the fundamental ability to understand themselves. Body autonomy is challenged socially and medically at every turn; performative gender conformity becomes a mental health coping technique used to gain access to social institutions and medical care despite the harm that gender dysphoria can cause. Centered around the question, "How do you gender?", panelists will share their personal and professional experiences with gender gatekeeping due to Autism Spectrum Disorder, and challenge the general perception of how to socially and medically transition by taking a piecemeal approach to gender, gender identity, and social and medical transition.

Families in Conflict

Presenter: Diane Ehrensaft, Ph.D.
Topic/Audience: Child Welfare, Mental Health, Legal, Religion & Spirituality, Parents / Caregivers

CEU

One of the most painful experiences for a gender-expansive youth is getting caught in the crossfire between two (or more) parents who cannot come to an agreement about what will be best for their child. The fields of mental health and law have not always been effective at curbing parents' confusion and mutual antagonism, nor worked together to do so. However, it is possible for parents to minimize the harm to their child by focusing on their child’s best interests. This session will discuss, from both a mental health and legal perspective, ways to facilitate dialogue and, if needed, encourage mediation, court action, and/or mental health services to help parents when they do not see eye to eye concerning their child's gender health.

Presenter: Cory Silverberg, M.Ed.
Topic/Audience: Parents, caregivers, and service providers working with young children (under 11).

CEU

Children, including very young children, have experiences and questions about sexuality and gender, even before they have the language to ask those questions in a way that we as adults and parents always recognize. How can we start talking with our kids about gender and sexuality in a way that meets them where they are at and prepares them for what’s to come? And how can we do this in a way that includes trans and gender diverse youth and families? In this workshop we’ll talk about how to present information about gender and sexuality to kids in a way that feels like it fits for them and how to follow a child’s lead while balancing our own worries about happiness, safety, and health. It’s an opportunity to ask questions, share what’s worked (and what hasn’t) in your own families, and imagine a more inclusive way of supporting sexual health and safety of young people.

Defining and Caring for Non-binary Folks

Presenter: Johanna Olson-Kennedy, MD
Audience: Child Welfare, Education, Mental Health, Medical, Legal, Religion & Spirituality, Parents / Caregivers, Adult Allies

CEU • CME

Increasing numbers of youth presenting for care related to gender dysphoria are endorsing gender identities that fall outside of the historical dichotomy of male or female. Gender fluid, genderqueer, gender neutral, agender, demi-boy, and demi-girl are only a few of the many identities that are being explored and named so that youth may have a more accurate and expanded lexicon to describe their gender experience. Requests for the use of non-binary pronouns such as they, ze, hir or others often cause consternation for family members, professionals and other community members, even more so than the changing of pronouns from 'he' to 'she,' or vice versa. This workshop will explore the language, presentation and strategies for understanding and caring for non-binary youth.
