Adolescence: Preparing for Lifelong Health and Wellness

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 1pm EDT

Students in front of a chalkboardAdolescence is a critical stage of development during which physical, intellectual, emotional, and psychological changes occur. While adolescence is a relatively healthy period of life, adolescents begin to make lifestyle choices and establish behaviors that affect both their current and future health.

Parents have an important role in helping their adolescents stay healthy, but there are other influences on the choices adolescents make. Of the 42 million U.S. adolescents, age 10-19 years, 91% are enrolled in school, making schools and academic institutions an ideal place to foster lifelong healthy behaviors. Other community level interventions can also make the healthy choice the easy choice.

In this session of Grand Rounds, we will explore adolescent health, specifically how families, community organizations, schools, and government agencies can work together to encourage adolescents to avoid risk and adopt health-promoting behaviors.

Captions are only available on the Windows Media links. The webcast links are only active during the date and time of the session, but all sessions are archived for future viewing.

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.
