Event Overview
Welcome message:

Recently, the LGBTQ community has been in the national spotlight for challenging issues like which bathroom a transgender person should use, increased youth suicide rates, and the Pulse nightclub tragedy. No wonder youth in our communities are scared to be open about who they are.


As a clinician, how are you supposed to help an LGBTQ youth when their parents are just not on board? Also as a clinician, do you know what type of treatment techniques to suggest when a transgender youth wants to prolong hitting puberty? These are the types of questions clinicians struggle with.


Join expert and author, Deb Coolhart, Ph.D., LMFT as she draws on her nearly 20 years of working with LGBTQ youth. Deb will show you effective clinical strategies for:

Coming out

Bullying

Suicide, anxiety, shame, depression, self-harming

Making healthy choices

Thriving in school

Options for guiding gender transition


Working with these youth and families can be complex, requiring the balance of many seemingly opposing viewpoints. As a clinician, there is nothing more rewarding than facilitating these changes and watching families discover their own path towards understanding.


Help LGBTQ kids and adolescents know that it’s their right to be themselves!


Objectives:


Detect the pressures of youth growing into an LGBTQ identity.

Facilitate the coming out process with youth and families.

Analyze LGBTQ youth clients’ level of risk and protective factors.

Measure parents’ level of acceptance and help them gain increased support.

Articulate between the needs of LGBQ and transgender youth and their families.

Determine when families are ready for gender transition.

Compose letters of support for medical gender transition treatments.

Formulate skills to advocate for LGBTQ-affirmative school environments.

Speakers/Faculty:

Deb Coolhart, PhD, LMFT, is a private practice clinician and an assistant professor in the Marriage and Family Therapy Department at Syracuse University. She has been doing therapy with LGBTQ youth and their families for nearly 20 years. She created the Transgender Treatment Team in Syracuse University’s Couple and Family Therapy Center, where she trains and supervises masters students to work with transgender people and their families.


Dr. Coolhart has several publications on clinical work with LGBTQ youth. Her recent work has focused on transgender youth and their families. She has developed a tool for assessing youths’ and families’ readiness for gender transition treatments, published in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy. She has also published multiple manuscripts on supporting transgender youth and families in therapy and advocating for trans-affirmative school environments. Recently, she co-authored a book, The Gender Quest Workbook: A Guide for Teens and Young Adults Exploring Gender Identity. Additionally, Dr. Coolhart has conducted research on transgender people and their family relationships and the experiences of LGBTQ homeless youth.
