Belonging, The Opposite of Fitting In – Gender in Action
More people are feeling safer coming out as transgender than ever before. We are seeing more transgender clients in treatment than ever. So what do we do? When a client informs us they would like to transition or are in the midst of transitioning when they come to treatment, we may freeze. We may not know what to do and we may need help. This session is geared toward cisgender clinicians who may be working with transgender clients or will be working with transgender clients in the future (which is everyone). This session will be experiential in nature, will give clinicians a better understanding of themselves as it relates to their transgender clients, and will offer helpful hints to be more prepared and comfortable working with the trans population. If you are ready and willing to get up and experience gender, clinical work and your own bias, then this is the session for you.
Full breakfast and refreshments will be provided
