Acclaimed researcher Rebekah Stone receives grant from TranscendSupport.com to raise awareness of the plight of transgender children and offer both children and their parents reliable solutions to solving integration difficulties.
Irvine, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/07/2013 -- Supporting a somewhat controversial cause in order to assist Dr. Rebekah Stone (PHD) with her research into effects on transgender children of parental attitudes to gender diversity, transcendsupport.com is offering the acclaimed researcher a grant for study.
Rebekah Stone believes the help provided by the company will facilitate the difficult tasks of exploring different clinical approaches and providing reliable solutions to transgender children and their parents: "Transcend Support is one of a growing number of responsible organizations to acknowledge the plight of transgender children and offer their support into this important research.”
Some estimates claim that 1 in 10,000 children may be suffering from gender identity disorder (GID) and a lot of experts expect the numbers to continue to grow in the following years. If in 1999, an average gender management clinic would have treated only four patients suffering from GID per year, in 2012 such clinics reported almost 20 patients, indicating that the number of GID sufferers has increased fourfold.
“It’s simply devastating to children”, says Rebekah Stone. “Transgender children who do not have access to counseling or medical assistance right from the beginning are prone to have severe psychological problems, experience depression, self-mutilation and even attempt suicide. It’s crucial to help children who reach high levels of distress with their changing bodies impacting their social, emotional and intellectual development.”
As would be expected, parents of children who undergo such an important transition are constantly submitted to numerous issues in their family, at school, at work and in the community. The journeys traveled by these families are long and difficult, considering the many challenges the members have to pass, but fortunately the attention GID received in the media is causing a lot of them to become more receptive to this important problem.
