In this Practice Paper, the speakers consider the issues for young people who experience a marked incongruence between one’s experience or expressed gender and assigned gender.  This Practice Paper explores the needs of children who experience difference and diversity in sexual formation and the development of legal principle in relation to the decisions about the treatment of transsexual children.

Chair: The Honourable Justice Colin Forrest, Family Court of Australia
