When a child announces that he or she is gay, lesbian or transgender many parents are unable to respond to the news with sensitivity or support of their child. Reactions can range from throwing the child out of the house immediately to making every effort to understand what the child is going through, and everything in between, such as: "How could you do this to me? What did I do wrong?"
Our today's guest is Dr. Anne Dohrenwend, author of "Coming Around: Parenting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Kids," who will discuss how the child's "coming out" to his or her parents can be the most determinant factor in the child's moving forward successfully. Anything short of telling the child "I love you" will be heard by the gay young person that he/she doesn't really deserve love but the family members offer it anyway.
Anne Dohrenwend, PhD, ABPP, is assistant program director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at McLaren Regional Medical Center, Flint, Michigan and an associate professor at Michigan State University. She works with parents and young people coping with LGBT issues. She has a PhD in counseling psychology from the University of North Dakota and is board certified in Clinical Health Psychology. Anne and her partner live in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Dr. Annie Abram and Armin Brott, a fathering expert and the author of many books about fathers will discuss the importance of fathers in their children's lives. Although, there continues to be a stigma associated with "care-giving" dads, through out last two decades the role of the father has been increasingly recognized as just as important as that of the mother in determining the well being of children in every aspect of their development. For example, the involvement of a father in a girl's life is instrumental in how she thinks about herself as a woman, a worker,
and increases her confidence on every level. Of course, this is true for boys as well, largely through gender identification.
A former Marine, Armin Brott has devoted the last 20 years to providing men with the tools, support, and knowledge to help them become the fathers they want to be——and their families need them to be. His eight critically acclaimed books for fathers have sold well over a million copies. Titles include The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be and The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year. He has written on fatherhood for hundreds of newspapers and magazines and is a frequent guest on such television programs as the Today Show. He also writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column (Ask Mr. Dad), and hosts a syndicated radio show (Positive Parenting). He lives with his family in Oakland, California.
Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Michael Bader will discuss the reasons why every year most people make New Year's resolutions, and why they don't work.
According to Dr. Bader's recent article in the Huffington Post: "The reason that New Year's resolutions don't work is that we have unconscious resolutions not to change. For every conscious resolution to lose weight, stop drinking, save money, call your Mom more often, control your temper, or finish that project, there are unconscious commitments to keep things exactly the way they are."
Today's guest is Caroline Gibbs, founder and director of The Transgender Institute, located in Kansas City, Missouri, whose mission is to help adults and young families to address their gender concerns through individual, group and family therapy.
Today's discussion will focus on what does it mean to be transgender, and how we can help this movement to progress.

Caroline brings a deep respect for, and sensitivity to, the needs of families of origin, partners, children and friends, a familiarity with the diversity of gender expression and the transgender liberation movement, and an in-depth knowledge of mental health concerns.
Caroline uses a holistic approach that includes psychological counseling, hormone treatment, psychiatric referrals, and surgery guidance among numerous other services.

Today Annie Abram and her guest, David Trotter, will discuss sex trafficking in the US. There are "100,000 children in the sex trade in the United States each year. In the US, sex trafficking commonly occurs in online escort services, residential brothels, brothels disguised as massage businesses or spas, and in street prostitution. Victims are frequently lured by false promises of a lucrative job, stability, education, or a loving relationship. In the U.S., victims can be men or women, adults or children, foreign nationals or U.S. citizens. While they share the trait of vulnerability, victims have diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, varied levels of education, and may be documented or undocumented."
