Gender and Sexual Identity in Youth Webinar

$20.00 Or MEMBER PLAN (Starting at $9.95 a month)

Trainer: Vicki Enns, MMFT

Gender and sexuality are central features of identity development in adolescence. When a person’s internal experience of gender and/or sexuality does not match with what would typically be expected based on their external appearance, it can cause great distress and difficulty. Caregivers can also struggle with knowing how best to respond and support youth in these situations. Participants of this webinar will develop an awareness and understanding of what this experience can be like, and how to create more accessible and welcoming environments for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, two-spirited, transsexual, queer and questioning individuals.
