NO MORE WOKE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT APPROACHES
"Because TGNC (Transgender Non Conforming) children have increased gender fluidity, practitioners must have the skill to support families in allowing their child to decide to return to a previous gender identity that is aligned with their assigned birth sex."
"In these instances, affirmative counseling with children entails continuing to support them in exploring their gender identity and gender expression in a way that is congruent with how they feel, as well as validating their thoughts and feelings about their gender."
"Caregivers (e.g. parents, guardians) may not have the education they need to understand the fluidity of gender identity and gender expression. Counselors and psychologists, therefore, begin consultations with families by normalizing not only the child's gender fluidity, but also the resulting concerns caregivers may have."
"A focus of all TGNC-affirming counseling should include sharing with families the research findings that TGNC youth have more positive health outcomes when there is family support."
