Kathryn Ciesla to Present at AFCC Illinois on Transgender Youth in the Family Court System

Transgender youth are often involved in family court proceedings due to parental rejection, mental health problems, and conflict between parents over gender-affirming care. This program introduces family court professionals to best practices in working with transgender youth, including the use of appropriate vocabulary, consideration of social climate, and evaluation of competency to consent to gender-affirming medical care over caregiver objection(s). Please join Kathryn Ciesla, Esq., the Honorable Judge Regina Scannicchio, and Dr. Jonathan Poquiz with Lurie Chilidren's Hospital, in discussing transgender youth in the family court system.
