Transgender youth face unique and complex issues
as they confront cultural expectations of gender
expression and how these fit with what is natural for
them. Striving for balance, learning to cope, questioning,
and eventually becoming comfortable with one’s
gender identity and sexual orientation are of paramount
importance for healthy growth and development.
Ineffective management of intense challenges
over time without adequate social support places
youth at risk for a number of unhealthy behaviors,
including risk behaviors associated with acquiring
HIV. This article explores early foundations of gender
identity development, challenges in the development
of transgender youth, and the limited data that exist
on transgender youth and HIV risks. The concept of
resilience is introduced as a counterbalancing area
for assessment and intervention in practice and future
research with transgender youth.

True gender self child therapy is based on the premise of gender as a
web that weaves together nature, nurture, and culture and allows
for a myriad of healthy gender outcomes. This article presents concepts
of true gender self, false gender self, and gender creativity
as they operationalize in clinical work with children who need
therapeutic supports to establish an authentic gender self while
developing strategies for negotiating an environment resistant to
that self. Categories of gender nonconforming children are outlined
and excerpts of a treatment of a young transgender child are
presented to illustrate true gender self child therapy.

Families of gender nonconforming children need to negotiate the interactions
between two gender systems: a rigid gender binary imported from familial, social, and
cultural experiences and a fluid gender spectrum articulated by their child. This article
reviews parental reactions to nonconforming gender developments and poses that
the parental mandates of protection and acceptance are problematized by the difference
of gender norms between the child and the family, as well as the child and the
environment. Through multiple therapeutic modalities—parental coaching and education,
parent support group, and child and family therapy—the author illustrates interventions
supporting both parents and prepubescent children in their negotiation of
safety, connection, and fluidity. Case vignettes illustrate the method in action.

The Opening Doors Project started with the idea that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender
and questioning (LGBTQ) youth in foster care are disadvantaged for many
reasons and judges and lawyers can help them.We knew that a number of child
welfare agencies and national organizations that work with agencies were improving
the situation for LGBTQ youth in foster care, but little was being done to help
judges and attorneys do their jobs better.We’ve created this book, and the trainings
that go with it, to help judges and lawyers.

You may have come across many lessons regarding dating, love, and relationships
in your time. Things like, “Love is about give and take,” or that “It takes two to
tango.” If you had to do an assignment and breakdown these phrases, you might
interpret them to mean that intimate relationships are about compromise and
coming to decisions together.
