Trans Affirmative Parenting

An 8-week interactive course and therapeutic group for parents, guardians, and caretakers of transgender, gender expansive, and gender-questioning teens and young adults.

Throughout this course, you will:

  • Broaden your understanding of transgender and gender expansive identities.
  • Learn how to better support and validate your teen or young adult.
  • Process challenging emotions you may be experiencing—such as fear, overwhelm, confusion, grief—and develop skills for supporting yourself.
  • Connect with members of your community.
  • Celebrate successes and growth.

 

Each meeting will include interactive educational components, group discussion, and peer support. Sophie Pellegrini, LMSW, and Brigette Selbert, BA, will incorporate Mindfulness, coping skills practice, Feminist Therapy, and other strategies to support your resilience as a parent or caregiver of a trans, gender expansive, or gender-questioning teen/young adult.
