Outside of the Gender Binary: Defining and Caring for Non-Binary Identified Youth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The gender binary is limiting in both describing the experience of gender, but also in the development of medical and mental health care protocols. This workshop will primarily be a discussion of the approach to caring for non-binary identified youth in the mental and medical health care domains. Led by three experienced clinicians, we will explore the challenges of development, societal integration, language, privilege, and medical decision making for non-binary youth. Additionally, this workshop will introduce a new tool for visual depiction of gender experience that is richer and more complete than the simplistic binary.
