This second episode of Just Breathe: Parenting Your LGBTQ Teen takes an look at the Cass Identity Model for Coming Out. I talk about each of the developmental stages, and share personal stories, give examples of what to expect and how to best support your child through the process. The stages are as follows:
* Identity Confusion
* Identity Comparison
* Identity Tolerance
* Identity Acceptance
* Identity Pride
* Identity Synthesis
