As the world becomes better educated on Gender Dysphoria and the new terminologies emerging under a Gender Expansive Umbrella, we are coming to discover a growing trend… De-Transitioners. Is this a phenomena, simply regret or something more? There can be various reasons why someone who has gone through the challenges of conforming into a new gender, to later come to the decision to revert to their previous cis-gender identity. How would therapists and professionals navigate through this? Through this Workshop we will explore the possibilities of preventing detransition, navigating through a detransition, and underline the many challenges that clinicians might face when treating individuals with gender dysphoria.
