Network MindOUT Webinar: Working with Transgender and Non-Binary Young People

Network MindOUT

Topic: A Critical Development Approach to Working with Transgender and Non-Binary Young People

Description: This webinar aims to provide attendees with an overview of the mental health needs of transgender and non-binary young people, before outlining an approach to working with transgender and non-binary young people that is mindful of both their diverse needs, and those of their parents. Upon completion, attendees will be able to:

  1. understand critical tools for identifying the logic underpinning discrimination directed towards transgender and non-binary young people,
  2. appreciate how developmental accounts have limited our understanding of transgender and non-binary young people, and
  3. appreciate the utility of an approach to case formulation that is critical of gender and developmental norms. 

Presenter: Damien Riggs is an Associate Professor in social work at Flinders University, and Australian Research Council Future Fellow, a psychotherapist in private practice who specialises in working with transgender young people, and a Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society.
