Identity Impact by Dina Proto
When Society’s Expectations Collide with the Authentic Self
In Identity Impact, Dina Proto, RN outlines the clinical connection between the negation of a child’s identity and certain health complications.
Drawing from her twenty years as a nurse – working in the ER, hospice, and everything in between – she challenges us to examine this critical question:
What is the potential fall out when a child’s identity doesn’t fit neatly into society’s box?
Proto believes that while we all struggle through the stages of growth, those along the LGBTQ continuum experience an additional layer of identity development, as well as stages of grief, that impact their coping mechanisms.
She asserts that the very people in our lives trained to mold and shape us into adults are, in fact, ill-prepared to guide the development of those within the LGBTQ community due to a lack of understanding, relevant research, and mandated training. Proto believes that by opening up the conversation around gender identity we can stop the cycle of treating health complications only after they occur, and start providing education to prevent them.
