What is it about?
This article summarizes and contrasts the prevailing models for caring for gender diverse children and youth, offering conclusions about best practices using an interdisciplinary model of care.
Why is it important?
We are at a moment in history where more and more children and youth are showing up as gender diverse and simultaneously more controversies are surfacing in the field as to what is in the best interests of these youth, who have heretofore sometimes experienced harm rather than help in the hands of those who care for them. As a vulnerable population, It is important to make sure we are doing well rather than doing harm with these children.
