Pamela Garfield-Jaeger is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience. In her interview with host Sienna Mae Heath, Pamela describes how much the mental health profession has changed in just a few short years, particularly when it comes to treatment of gender dysphoric patients. In 2021, at a teen clinic in California, 3 out of 10 kids identified as non-binary and none of Pamela’s colleagues questioned it. There are other negative trends happening too, such as reinforcement of victim mentality and boys being dismissed as having toxic masculinity.
