Gender 101: Understanding and Supporting Gender Diversity—Tuesday, March 23, 6-7 PM

Duke School will be hosting the presentation "Gender 101:Understanding and Supporting Gender Diversity" with therapist Meg Hamilton on Tuesday, March 23, beginning at 6 PM.

In this workshop, Meg will give information about some of the basics of understanding gender identity. We will discuss the differences between gender identity, sexual and romantic identity, gender expression, and attraction, learn basic terminology and concepts, and talk about ways to support a child's expressed gender identity or questions about their identity. In a time of Zoom meetings, Meg keeps workshops engaging through inviting questions and interactive exercises.

Meg is a therapist and art therapist in Durham, NC.
