Asia Eaton, Ph.D., & Dionne Stephens, Ph.D. will be presenting. From the perspective of adults today, teen's issues and behaviors around sexual and gender identity may seem foreign, scary, or complicated. Some of the most popular media figures in kids' lives identify as gender queer and/or sexually diverse (e.g., Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Kristin Stewart). In this talk, Drs. Stephens and Eaton help parents, teachers, guardians, clinicians, and advocates understand emerging forms of sexual and gender identity, and how to have honest discussions with teens to keep them informed.
