This two-hour training module will define the Gender Binary, including the barriers it creates. We’ll describe how these barriers can contribute to negative self-image for all children, and most especially transgender and gender-diverse children.
We’ll discuss how children begin to understand gender expectations and how adults in their lives can mitigate these expectations that children will encounter in school, community, and home environments.
Finally, we’ll share best practices to create welcoming spaces for all youth, as well as to provide guidance on how to best support children that are exploring their gender.
