In the past, identifying as gender-diverse was itself considered a mental health condition. Today, that outmoded view is being replaced in the treatment community with a greater understanding of the issues the gender diverse face for being who they are. Mental health professionals, along with many families and individuals, are dealing with the implications of gender diversity, as society moves from a binary view of gender to multiple gender models.
On the new episode of the “Conversations with KidsPeace” podcast series, therapist Jonna Finocchio and psychiatrist Ashleigh Anderson discuss the changes in how we view gender and their impact on caring for the gender-diverse.
