Join us for a conversation with Mark A. Yarhouse, clinical psychologist and author of Gender Identity and Faith, Emerging Gender Identities, and Understanding Gender Dysphoria. Mark will translate practical wisdom for clinicians from Gender Identity and Faith to how to provide pastoral care to children, youth, and adults pursuing congruence between their gender identity and faith.
This webinar will increase understanding of the cultural, ideological, and political polarization surrounding care for young people navigating gender-identity questions. Join us to better embody a posture of love integrating three frameworks for thinking about differing experiences of gender identity (integrity, disability, and diversity). Learn how to accompany people who take their gender identity, religious identity, and the relationship between the two seriously.
Come with your questions, or feel free to send questions beforehand to firstname.lastname@example.org.
