Blast the Binary: Working With Gender Expansive Clients

This presentation is intended to educate counselors on the specific needs related to clients who identify as members of the transgender/gender expansive community, with particular focus on pronoun usage, ethics, terms of identification, intersectionality of identities, gender development across the life span, specific interventions clinicians can use, and options for those clients who want to pursue medical transitioning. The presenter will provide a variety of resources, including articles, websites, specific authors, and check lists for components necessary for medical transitioning. The session will also provide a time for presenter questions.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the intersectionality of identities within the transgender/gender expansive community, how it effects the therapeutic process, and how to address intersectionality in therapy.
  • Recognize gender identity development across the life span, including specific information regarding children, adolescents, and adults within this community.
  • Identify specific interventions in working with clients and ethics involved in working with this population, specifically the World Professional Association Standards of Care.

This webinar is held on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT. This facilitated webinar is available to NSPN members through NSPN's partnership with NBCC.
