CONSULTATION

Consultation involves providing information or support to help an individual, group, or organization in achieving a goal or hoped outcome. Consultation often includes two elements: 1) learning new content (such as language, terms, concepts or ideas), and 2) finding effective ways to plan for and navigate issues related to gender in a particular context or situation. 

Example Consultation Topics:

  • Developmental issues in childhood, and adolescence

  • Preparation for school and/or college

  • Discussions about gender with friends and family

  • Privacy and disclosure 

  • Making informed medical decisions

  • Planning for significant life events

  • Safety issues

  • Legal rights and options (including name and gender marker changes)

  • Stages of acceptance, support, and understanding
