WHAT: This support group is designed for parents or other adult family members who are looking to understand and support a transgender/nonbinary individual with an Asperger profile who is 18 years of age or older.
Meetings will involve a combination of psycho-education and peer support focused on these common issues facing neurodivergent, transgender/non-binary adults and their families:
- sensory processing
- executive functioning
- social interactions
- mental health
- family dynamics
This support group series is not a therapy group. The goal is to help parents better understand their adult child’s journey, adapt as a parent, and evolve their relationship with their child. The focus will be on helping parents strike a balance between caring for themselves and parenting.
The group will be facilitated by Allyson Linehan and two highly-respected experts who specialize in working with neurodivergent and transgender/non-binary individuals and their families: Jamie Freed and Melissa MacNish .
This support group series will be limited to 12 members and will meet biweekly for 8 online sessions from 7:30-9:00 PM on Thursdays starting on March 5.
