About the event

$60 (Including GST) Per Family

Most of us tend to spend a lot of time in our heads, and ignore our hearts, except when it overwhelms us and floods our system. The goal of this workshop is to give space and voice for both the head (information/thoughts) and the heart (emotions/feelings), in meeting the needs of parents of trans children and youth in a trans phobic world. Anger, fear and sadness will all be discussed, as they pertain to caring for trans children and/or youth. 

In this very personal workshop, Kirsten Mueller (a parent of a trans child herself) will share some strategies and tools, learned during her career as a social worker, that have helped her personally in times of overwhelming emotions and parental stress. Honouring the needs of our heads, she has also summarized some research highlights, and will share that with the audience, including both encouraging news and areas for change.
