Many of the challenges that adolescents face become more difficult when the lens of gender diversity is added to the mix. Sexuality, body image, eating disorders, relationships with parents and other adults are just some of the areas that prove difficult enough for young people coming into adulthood. For gender-expansive youth, working around these issues can become even more complicated. This session will explore how gender intersects with the many medical and mental health challenges adolescents encounter, and specific strategies for approaching them.
