This workshop will feature clinical examples that provide insights into some of the difficult questions facing care providers as they seek to support gender-expansive children and youth. What do we know about and how do we characterize "persisters" and "desisters?" What are we learning about the timing for starting blockers on children who have asserted a consistent transgender identity throughout childhood? Where do considerations of future fertility fit into the medical care of a gender-expansive patient? Using specific cases, the session will highlight how practitioners are grappling with these questions, as well as how a growing body of research from gender clinics throughout the world are influencing their answers and approaches.
