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.
