This seminar provides 6.0 CEU’s to social workers, clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors. The workshop also counts for the Social Work Cultural Competency licensure renewal requirement.
Transgender and gender nonconforming people have existed throughout history. In recent years, however, dramatically increased visibility and growing social acceptance have led more transgender people than ever to openly discuss their identities, experiences, and needs. Even clinicians with extensive experience working with gender diversity have difficulty keeping up with rapidly evolving terminology, thinking about best practices, and available resources. This workshop will cover these topics and others to help participants provide truly affirming services to transgender and gender nonconforming adults.
The workshop format will include a combination of lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, and clinical consultation to help participants increase both their knowledge and their concrete skills in providing gender-affirming care.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
– Comfortably use inclusive terminology and gender neutral language
– Identify common presenting issues and contemporary practice models
– Assess and improve the level of gender-inclusivity of their current practice
