Group meets every Wednesday on Zoom from 6-7:30 pm
For individuals ages 16-24.
Gender Diverse Empowerment: Building Confidence & Better Coping is a topic-based, skills-building online educational group that helps gender diverse individuals (ages 16-24) live a more values-aligned life in the face of daily barriers. We’ll address common challenges including coming out, gender expression and identity, self-advocacy and medical systems, developing healthy relationship patterns, and dealing with the intense emotions that often surround these issues. Our gender affirmative approach will create opportunities for strengthening resilience, engaging in the world more authentically, and feeling the comfort of an empathic community in a safe, relaxed space.
In weekly online meetings, discussion topics may include the following:
• Coming Out & Disclosure
• Questioning Gender Identity
• Acceptance & Belonging
• Medical Transition Distress
• Pressure to “Pass”
• Relational Boundaries
• Gender Dysphoria & Body Dysmorphia
