    Shelley   Gender Identity Powerpoint Shelley Gender Identity Powerpoint Presentation Transcript

    • Michelle Bridgman Become who You Are
    • The Real Cost Gender Identity - Is there a more misunderstood topic? Michelle Bridgman Psychotherapist & Gender identity Disorder Specialist
    • A National Scandal The media seem incapable of balanced reporting when it comes to children or international athletes with gender identity or intersex issues
    • The Problem
      • Home Office statistics suggest that 10,000 adults have sought help for gender identity issues with over 6,000 having received medical intervention.
      • Children often stay hidden until adulthood so the number is likely to be much higher
      • The knock on effect on friends and families is much higher with recent estimates putting the total number of people affected by gender identity issues at around 300,000
    • The Answer
      • Children & adults alike would benefit from effective Psychotherapy to help make sense of their gender identity.
      • Instead of attacking and ridiculing transgendered people, the media needs to recognise that gender identity problems are not a bizarre lifestyle choice but a compulsion which can cause great distress to individuals, families & friends
