Monthly Meet-up: Helping Parents and Families with Gender Creative, Gender Non-conforming and Transgender Children - Counseling & Therapy Services - The Juniper Center

Families with Gender Creative

Hi all,

Please join us for our monthly networking/learning meeting on Friday, April 21 from 9:30 to 11 am. We meet at The Juniper Center Park Ridge location at 1440 Renaissance Dr., Suite 320.

This month we will be discussing…

Where’s the Owner’s Manual for This One: Helping parents and families who have gender creative, gender non-conforming and transgender children find their way in a new world.

Parents and families of gender creative kids are being faced with challenges for which they have little understanding, no experience and no mentors.  While parents may want to be helpful to their children, often they do not know how to digest the information, navigate the larger family system or allay their fears that their child’s life is ruined.

We will address all of these issues and offer practical suggestions of how to assist families in this navigating this brave, new, gender creative world.
