Gender, Sexual Identity, and Youth - CGRSJ Speaker Series
Friday, April 20, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
NYU Steinhardt's Commission on Gender, Race, and Social Justice Speaker Series is proud to host a conversation with Dr. Aron Janssen, M.D.
Dr. Janssen will be discussing issues around gender, sexual identity, and youth, posing the following question:
In a society that approaches gender from a binary perspective, what happens to the kids that don’t fit neatly into a box?
In this talk, Dr. Janssen will explore how asking that question led to the creation of a novel service for LGBTQ youth.
Aron Janssen, M.D., the director of the NYU Gender and Sexuality Service is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with interest in LGBTQ health and specifically in the assessment of gender variance in children and adolescents. Additionally, Dr. Jassen is a Clinical Instructor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and an Attending Physician at the NYU Child Study Center. Prior to joining the CSC, he completed his general psychiatry residency at NYU/Bellevue. While in training, he founded the LGBT mental health clinic at Bellevue Hospital and continues to oversee its operation.
