9. Torture by Another Name: Ending Conversion Therapy and Building LGBT Youth Resilience and Community

Although Conversion Therapy has been demonstrated to be both ineffective and harmful, only 6 states have passed laws banning this practice with minors. Washington has not. This workshop will focus on building awareness of advocacy efforts to reduce conversion therapy, and efforts to build community resistance and resilience among LGBT youth.

Jill Davidson, PhD, NCSP is a school psychologist at North Kitsap High School and a woman of transgender history. She has been active in providing training to school psychologists addressing needs of transgender students and their families.
