The Gift of Gender Authenticity | Jean Malpas | TEDxAsburyPark
As society is becoming more welcoming of diverse gender identities, kids are becoming more vocal about gender expression and parents are bumping into novel challenges as their kids explore “gender expansiveness.”
Jean Malpas aims to open up the binary so kids feel welcome discussing their authentic selves and genders.
Jean Malpas is a certified psychotherapist and the director of The Gender Family Project of the Ackerman Institute for the Family (ackerman.org/gfp), which provides comprehensive multidisciplinary services for gender-expansive children, transgender adolescents, their families, and communities. He is a globally recognized expert on gender issues and is a regular on-air speaker for MSNBC, CNN and other news outlets.
