EMPOWERING PARENTS INFORMATION BOOKLET: https://thecountess.ie/empowering-parents/
In September 2021, a special webinar hosted was hosted by The Countess, a new human rights group advocating for women and children in Ireland. Founder of The Countess, and broadcast journalist, Laoise Uí Aodha de Brún interviewed two leading experts in the field – Stella O’Malley, psychotherapist, and Dr. Annette Neary, hospital consultant. They each offered their professional and clinical expertise on the best way to support a young person who is questioning their gender and identity.
In the last twenty years, there has been an explosion in the number of young people, and in particular adolescent girls, ‘identifying as the opposite gender’, who say that they ‘do not feel comfortable in their bodies’, who believe they were ‘born in the wrong body’, that they were ‘assigned the wrong gender at birth’ and that they are in fact, boys. The rate of increase among teenaged girls in the last twenty years is 5,337%.
