Live Grand Rounds: Supporting the Mental Health of LGBTQ+ Youth and Young Adults: The Role of Technology, Affirmative Practice and Trauma-informed Care
This presentation will address the consistent and emerging mental health disparities faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) youth and young adults. Participants will learn the role of technology on the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth and young adults and how to integrate into practice as well as the competencies and conditions for affirmative clinical practice. Many clinicians receive little or no clinical training in supporting the needs of LGBTQ+ Youth in graduate school or beyond, and this unique training offers the specific and emergent strategies to enable competent work with these populations.  Join Shelley L. Craig, Ph.D as she describes the current state of LGBTQ+ youth mental health, and the importance of affirmative practice and strategies.

Live Grand Rounds: Today’s ‘Genderation’ of Youth: The Ethics and Evidence Behind the Standard of Care
Dr. Leibowitz will provide an overview of the most recent edition of the Adolescent chapter in the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) Standard of Care.  WPATH is the leading international authority on transgender healthcare and has been in existence since 1979 when it published its first set of guidelines that made no mention of children or adolescents. Prior to this 8th edition, which was published in September 2022, the previous iteration (7th edition) was published over a decade prior. Join Dr. Leibowitz as he discusses the research and ethics regarding care for children and adolescents with gender related needs, and standards of care for this population.
