An opportunity to learn more about Gender Dysphoria and current issues for Young Transgender People. This conference will appeal to professionals across all agencies and sectors. It includes input from Scotland’s National Young People's Gender Clinic, with a focus on how young trans people can be best supported by local services.
Speakers will provide an insight into the current services available for young people, including the psychiatric, medical and psychological approach to assessment and intervention. They will consider the impact of gender non-conformity within the educational environment and how schools can support young people. The conference will also hear from third sector organisations who deliver supportive interventions at home and in the community.
This event will provide a valuable opportunity for networking with professionals from a range of backgrounds involved in the delivery of support, care and education for transgender young people and their families from across Scotland.
