Supporting Trans* and Gender Expansive Clients and their Families

This one-day workshop, facilitated by the Gender and Family Project’s Director Jean Malpas, LMFC, LMHC, and the Coordinator of Training & Education Benjamin Davis, ATR-BC, LCAT, will offer participants a framework beyond the binary of gender and, in particular, best practice guidelines for working with transgender and gender expansive adults, youth and their families. Participants will review the continua of sex, gender identity, and gender role, as well as updated research on gender development and family acceptance. The workshop will examine developmentally appropriate systemic interventions and engagement techniques and emphasize the stance of the gender affirming psychotherapist. Complex clinical cases will illustrate strength-based, gender-affirming clinical models with families, children, adolescents, and adults. Participants will leave with ample referral information, in addition to receiving 6 CE credits.
