Episode #12 - Understanding Transgender Children and Youth

In our last episode, Patricia had an interesting conversation with Dr. Tiffany Dawson about LGBTQ youth, and how being a member of a marginalized minority group negatively impacts their mental health. Today’s podcast takes a closer look at a subgroup of the larger LGBTQ population, specifically transgender children and youth. In this episode, Patricia speaks with Dr. Robin Cooper, a Licensed Psychologist and clinician at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center. Robin’s area of clinical practice is working with transgender young adults.
