Families often experience pain and confusion when a young person comes out as gay or transgender, or expresses gender in unexpected ways. Many questions feel urgent: Is this just a phase they will outgrow? Will they be safe? Did I do something wrong? What will people think of me/us? How do I tell the rest of the family?
YES Institute provides education and resources that support families grappling with these questions. Our Communication Solutions™ course, in particular, is effective in giving families a way to move past seemingly intractable battles over right/wrong. No one must give up their deeply-held beliefs for youth to stay safe and families to remain whole.
