“Part II of Affirming Clinical Treatment: How We Provide Care for Transgender, Non-Binary and Gender Expansive Clients”
Taryn Crosby, LCSW (she/her)
Too often clients of transgender and gender non-binary experience carry the burden of educating their mental health providers on how to provide them with adequate care. This workshop will increase participants’ knowledge and awareness around clinical considerations when working with transgender and non-binary clients so that their practice is not just adequate but affirming. Through clinical vignettes, group consultation and experiential exercises, this workshop will present important elements of gender-inclusive care. Participants will be exposed to material for supportive interventions and developing gender-affirming environments.
