Hilltop's Institute Evening Discussion Series Presents:
Beyond "Inclusion," Creating Liberating Spaces for Transgender Children and Families
Wednesday, February 10th
Facilitated by Talcott Broadhead
Join us for an Evening Discussion with Social Worker and author, Talcott Broadhead, where we will discover valuable tools to:
support all of the children and families in our classrooms,
develop an awareness of law and policy protections related to gender,
and gain an understanding of what it means to be trans-affirmative.
Our evening will begin with a reading of children's book, Meet Polkadot, after which we will explore gender identity and development as a group. We will investigate our own gender socialization and discuss strategies for unlearning harmful restrictions that reduce gender to a narrow 'two-option' system. Among the concepts addressed will be: Raising gender-independent children, normalizing all gender identities, and advocating for transgender children and families.
Talcott is a transgender Social Worker and author of the Polkadot Series, a collection of children's books that introduces readers to 'Polkadot,' a non-binary, transgender child. Don't miss the opportunity to learn more about this increasingly prevalent issue related to supporting children and families.
