Workshop Title: Creating Transgender-Inclusive Spaces within Your Work: Theory, Assessment, and Practical Implications

Workshop Description: 

The national conversation on transgender individuals is changing and has become a part of everyday experience. Many providers are LGBTQ-affirming, but may lack the specific competency to work with transgender clients. This poses a barrier for transgender or gender non-conforming (T/GNC)-identifying people who are seeking to receive effective mental health care. Participants in this workshop will gain an understanding of basic terminology and issues affecting the transgender community and will be presented with a conceptual model to apply to these clients. We will discuss assessment criteria for cross-sex hormone therapy evaluations and will discuss ways to make your practice T/GNC affirming.

Learning Objectives

  1. Summarize basic knowledge and awareness of issues specific to transgender individuals. 

  2. Apply a conceptualization model for working with transgender clients. 

  3. Discuss assessment criteria for cross-sex hormone evaluations. 

  4. Discuss ways to make your facility transgender and LGBT affirming
