Learning Outcomes

This webinar will explore ways practitioners can use non-binary language, help families recognise and understand children’s choices and support children’s mental health where they identify as trans or gender diverse. It will provide participants with the following learnings:

  • Choose practice that acknowledges what the child is experiencing is real and support parents in accepting and affirming their child’s choices and experiences
  • Select language which is not binary and doesn’t reinforce dominant stereotypes about gender
  • Describe how to use a support plan with trans and gender diverse children and their families
  • Identify referral pathways and how to make an appropriately supportive referral when working with trans and gender diverse children and their families.
