Virtual Event Virtual Event

Presented by Dr. Stephen B. Levine. A casual first person discussion of the values, goals, content, and processes of the first contact with a family concerned about “what is going on here.” The evaluation is a separate process prior to psychotherapy. Ideally, it informs the patient, family, and the future psychotherapist what reasonably should be the next step. Dr. Levine’s 2022 publication on informed consent and his 2024 publication, What is the Purpose of the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation of Minors With Gender Dysphoria (both published Open Access) are highly relevant to this webinar.

He is the Senior Editor of the first (2003), second (2010) and third (2016) editions of the Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals.
