Ask Alice: Gospel Hope for Body Dysmorphia and Gender Dysphoria

In this episode, host Alice Churnock discusses two important struggles which many teenagers encounter. The first is body dysmorphia, in which a person can’t stop obsessing about a perceived flaw in his/her appearance. The second is gender dysphoria: the anxiety that besets a person who perceives a conflict between his/her inner-identity and his/her biological sex. Alice explains how parents can walk alongside of teenagers who struggle with these sensations. Above all, she reminds listeners of the hope of the gospel – a source of supernatural transformation that impacts the whole person, not merely outer appearance.
