Creating Spaces for Supporting Parents and Caregivers of Gender Diverse Youth

A workshop session by Laura Galeano, Maritza Martinez and Lillian Rivera

Providing parents, caregivers and other loving adults safe spaces to navigate their own feelings about a child's gender journey is a crucial aspect of supporting the overall gender health of young people. Given the research about the impact of affirming parenting practices, as well as the developmental arc that is frequently observed as parents come to understand, acknowledge, and ultimately celebrate their child's gender, such spaces can help accelerate that process. What are some of the key factors in creating such settings? What are some of the common challenges that can arise? What conditions need to be in place within an organization to effectively implement parent support programs? Join Gender Spectrum's Director of Family Programming, Lillian Rivera in discussing these and other related topics for this critical aspect of supporting gender diverse young people.
