Zeroing in on Gender:
Discipline-based Examination of Practices for Supporting Gender Diverse Youth
For the first time ever, the 2012 Gender Spectrum Professionals' Conference will be organized around individual disciplines. Separate sessions for attorneys, medical providers, mental health professional and educators will take place, facilitated by experienced experts within each field. Particular to each professional area of focus will be an overview of the emerging issues around gender and youth, followed by presentations, readings and discussion designed to identify current practices for supporting families and their children to make informed choices that are right for them. The day will culminate with cross discipline conversations focused on intersections of practice, resources and networking.
This discipline-based structure will offer something to every professional, whether experienced or not with issues of gender. For professionals who have long been working with gender diverse children and youth and their families, the day will afford a unique opportunity to delve deeply into issues specific to your field with other professionals from various geographical settings and contexts. If you are new to this work, or even just beginning to explore the topic, these sessions will ground you in the fundamental questions and challenges families and kids face in your field. Additionally, the various resources that will be provided will further enhance every professional's toolbox.
