Presented by Lisa Marchiano, L.C.S.W.
Elan Lepovitch, M.A.
In recent years, there has been a significant spike in the number of people coming to identify as transgender. This sharp increase has happened alongside changes in how our culture understands gender. How are we to understand these changes, and what is the best way to respond to those suffering from gender dysphoria? This program will review recent trends; consider issues with current treatment protocols; and explore new research about the growing community of detransitioners.
- Describe what is meant by gender dysphoria.
- Describe the implications for treatment based on current research with detransitioners.
