The live professional training program on Counseling Members of the Transgender and Gender-Expansive Community: Providing Culturally Responsive Care is presented by Cortny Stark PhD.
Counseling members of the transgender and gender-expansive community requires a foundation of knowledge about the special issues faced by this population, and a “lifelong process of engagement” (Wilkinson, 2014, p. 68) in the evaluation of self and social norms.
This program will provide clinicians with an overview of the most recent developments in the field, and the information necessary for proficient practice with the gender-expansive community. Topics covered include:
- Gender-affirming practices: From forms and assessments to honoring gender-expansive identities in the therapeutic space
- Identification of transgender and gender-expansive identities in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood
- Assessment of Gender Dysphoria
- Gender-identity development for transgender and gender-expansive individuals
- Understanding social and medical gender-confirming interventions
- Ethical considerations when working with transgender and gender-expansive clients
- Counselors use of Reflective Practice (Larrieu and Dickson, 2009) and Cultural Humility (Tervalon and Murray-Garcia, 1998) to cultivate lifelong self-evaluation and evolving self-awareness
This live program is intended for mental health and other allied professionals. (Intended Audience).
This live program is appropriate for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians. (Experience Level).
