Beyond Clinical Interventions for Trans & Non-Binary Clients – 6/10-6/11
Shifting from Clinician to Advocate: Beyond Clinical Interventions for Our Transgender and Non-Binary Clients
Are you a mental health provider who wants to be a better ally or advocate for transgender and non-binary individuals? The purpose of this course is for clinicians who already serve transgender and non binary clients to expand their advocacy skills. Participants will engage in self reflection, small group scenarios with skill application, and individual action planning with the goal of increasing their skills to interrupt anti-transgender microaggressions and practices, build referral networks of trans inclusive providers, and identify local advocacy efforts. Participants will walk away with a deeper and more practical understanding of how they can continue to support their trans and non binary clients both inside and outside of the therapy office.
