No Voice Missing: Understanding Gender Transition (PT 1)
Going through gender transition is a process that has an impact not only on the person directly involved, but also those emotionally connected – family members, partners, friends. This workshop offers both voices: that of a transitioning individual and that of a ‘witnessing parent’.
By applying assumptions of systemic family approaches the facilitators intend to inspire, educate and explore the possibility that even the most difficult life events can be an opportunity to strengthen our relationships.
