90 minutes (1.5 CE hours, Methodology 8 - Research)
Gender identity is unifying the United States in conversation even if we are polarized in our stance.  Also polarizing is the understanding of how to care for children and adolescents who experience gender dysphoria.  Included in this educational opportunity will be basic definitions, statistics, ethical concerns, and faith matters associated with gender dysphoria.  Of greatest concern are the symptoms of distress that youth may experience or engage in when experiencing a discrepancy between their natal gender and gender identity.  The main objective of this educational opportunity is to provide chaplains with language and information to accompany individuals and families who struggle with gender identity.

How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.

System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Internet Explorer 10 or higher (Windows), Firefox 4 or higher, Google Chrome 2 or higher, Safari 4 or higher.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 10.3 or newer:
• Computer Speakers
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
System Test:
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at for assistance.

You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.
Cancellation Policy
The registration fee (minus a $20 nonrefundable processing charge) will be refunded up to May 14, 2017. APC reserves the right to cancel the program by July 23, 2017 if an insufficient number of people register. In case of APC cancellation, all registration fees will be refunded.
