Supporting Trans and Non-binary Youth


Clinical Strategies for Increasing Family Support and Building Resilience

At a time when trans rights are under attack across the country, now is a crucial time to learn practical strategies to help provide support to trans and nonbinary youth and their families. Research indicates that trans people have a suicide attempt rate of around 40% and family support significantly lowers depression, anxiety, and suicidality. As therapists, we need to be able to assist families who are adjusting to their youths’ trans/nonbinary identities so they can provide this protective support. Additionally, because dysphoria and minority stress are such immense stressors for trans and nonbinary youth, strategies for building resilience are necessary for survival.

Join Deb Coolhart, PhD, LMFT; Associate Professor of Marriage and Family Therapy at Syracuse University for this three-hour workshop to develop your clinical skills in providing counseling and therapy to gender-expansive youth and their families.
