This workshop aims to provide practical advice and resources for both the assessment of trans youth and the writing of reports for medical and surgery intervention in the treatment of gender dysphoria. A brief summary and focus on language and childhood gender dysphoria will be followed by the key aspects and process of assessment for gender dysphoria including the Gender Feeling Amplitude. Emphasis will be placed on the gathering of relevant history and information necessary to determine the severity of gender dysphoria, the necessity of treatment and possible interventions. Inclusion and support for parents during the assessment will be explained as well as collaboration with parents for interventions. Requirements of letters for endocrinologists and surgeons will be covered with examples to exhibit how evidence sourced from the assessment is used to meet the criteria using both the Australian Standards of Care & Treatment Guidelines: For trans and gender diverse children & adolescents, as well as the World Professional Association for Transgender Health’s Standards of Care (V7). The assessment will cover youth (assigned either female or male at birth) seeking hormonal interventions or surgery. Also covered will be how to determine whether hormonal and or surgical treatment is in the best interests of the client. Clips of an assessment video will be shown to demonstrate aspects of the assessment process and exercises will be provided to allow you to develop your skills in transferring knowledge from the assessment to the evidence required in writing reports. You will also be guided to resource services for trans clients in your state/territory. Guidance and advice for schools will also be included in this workshop. Please bring your questions to allow a client-focused discussion for the final segment of the day.



This online program is worth 6.25 hours CPD.
