Parents of Gender Variant Children
In 2012, as part of a larger study of the experiences of transgender people in Australia, Clemence Due and I undertook a project focusing on the experiences of (cisgender) parents of gender variant or transgender children. My interest in undertaking this research stems from my work as a psychotherapist. In my private practice I specialise in working with transgender young people and their families.
