Course Overview

In a 2019 survey conducted by the Trevor Project, 1 in 3 transgender youth reported attempting suicide. Suicide attempts, suicidal ideation and clinical depression are significantly higher among trans and gender diverse youth. This workshop will discuss factors connected to suicidal risk, including internal conflicts about gender identity, discrimination and minority stress, bullying and cyber-bullying, and lack of social and familial support. We will look at interventions and ways that clinicians can support systematic and individual change.
