Transcript

  • 1. Michelle Bridgman Become who You Are
  • 2. The Real Cost Gender Identity - Is there a more misunderstood topic? Michelle Bridgman Psychotherapist & Gender identity Disorder Specialist
  • 3. A National Scandal The media seem incapable of balanced reporting when it comes to children or international athletes with gender identity or intersex issues
  • 4. 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
  • 5. 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
