Clinical Care for Gender Non-Conforming and

Transgender Adolescents

Thursday, September 10, 2015

12:00-1:30 Pacific Time


About the Webinar

How can you help your adolescent clients who are exploring gender issues? How can you facilitate a dialogue between adolescents and their families? When should you consider providing or referring them for hormonal gender affirmation?


Gender non-conforming youth are emerging at increasingly younger ages, and those experiencing gender dysphoria are seeking medical care at the onset of puberty, or sometimes even before. Youth with gender dysphoria are at high risk for depression, anxiety, isolation, self-harm, and suicidality at the onset of puberty. Existing strategies for treating transgender youth depend on the developmental state at which these youth present for care.


Few health care providers are familiar with how children and adolescents who are exploring or struggling with gender issues might present in their practices. This webinar will help increase your awareness and screening of these clients and give you tools to support them and their families. It will cover standards of care and timelines for prescribing medication to suppress endogenous puberty. It will also cover standards of care for gender-affirming hormonal treatments during adolescence. 



Johanna Olson, MD is an Adolescent Medicine Physician specializing in the care of transgender youth, gender variant children, youth with HIV, and chronic pain. Board certified in Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Dr. Olson has been an Assistant Professor at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles for the past nine years.
