Join us for the first of a 3 part series on Gender facilitated by  Eunice AvilésPsyD, LMHC, LPC , a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Gender Specialist and an AASECT certified Sex Therapist. She provides psychological care, professional training, and regularly speak at educational conferences  about gender identity, gender dysphoria, and related topics.

Have your children ever asked you if someone is a boy or a girl? Have you thought of the importance of discussing what is gender identity with your children?  Has your child ever expressed that they do not identify with the gender that was assigned to them at birth according to their biological sex?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you. Join us for an open discussion on how to address the topic of gender identity with our children.  During this conversation we will focus on the importance of raising children that are respectful and embracing of gender diversity.
