THINKING SYSTEMS ABOUT GENDER TRANSITION Online Event

1:00pm – 3:00pm EST

Thinking Systems About Gender Transition
Over the past ten years there has been a large increase in the number of adults and children transitioning gender in the U.S. and other countries. There has also been a heightened focus- both positive and negative, on transgender people, and a great deal of anxiety associated with this topic. This presentation will describe what it looks like to “think systems” about a phenomenon, and will include understandings of gender transition informed by this lens. Observations of how animals, families, and societal groups respond to gender atypical behavior, and the emotional processes underlying these responses, will inform the discussion.
