Diagnostic and Treatment Issues for Children and Adolescents who Vary in their Gender Interests (CE:3)
May 3, 2013 8:45am - 12:00 noon
presented by Edgardo Menvielle, MD and John Strang, PsyD
This workshop meets the APA Cultural Competence Requirement
This workshop will provide an overview of the clinical issues relevant to children and adolescents with gender presentations and/or sexual orientations that vary from the norm. A developmental perspective will be emphasized as clinical presentations and therapeutic needs typically evolve with maturation. The relevant evidence for the treatment of gender dysphoria in children and adolescents will be summarized, as well clinical issues related to comorbid developmental issues (i.e., autism spectrum disorders, AD/HD). The rationale for family centered interventions will be explained in detail and clinical examples will be given.
