Caring for the Intersex Client or Patient

Speaker: Cary Costello

Topics: ,

This presentation is aimed at those who provide professional services or care to intersex individuals–for example, health care professionals, psychologists, and social workers. It provides an overview of intersex experience and the concerns of sex-variant clients and patients as expressed by intersex people (in addition to conducting research in this area, Dr. Costello is himself intersex by birth). Guidance on what intersex clients and patients experience as helpful and as alienating will be provided.
