Title:
How to Be Supportive of Clients Who Are Transgender

Description:
Participants will learn how to make their practice more supportive to clients who are transgender, questioning their gender, non-binary, or intersexed. This will be an interactive workshop where participants can ask questions about transgender issues while learning about the trans* culture, from trans* friendly language and forms to understanding informed consent.

Note: trans* is a way to designate all types of trans, such as transwoman, transman, transgender, transsexual, transfeminine, etc.

Educational Goals:
This workshop will benefit LMFT, LPCC, LEP and LCSW licensees and pre-licensees by learning how to better support any clients who are questioning their gender.

Learning Objectives:
After the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Design forms that are supportive to clients who are transgender,
  2. Identify clients who have Gender Dysphoria and those clients who are gender fluid/non binary;
  3. Discuss what gender is and what transgender means;
  4. Create an atmosphere that allows for open discussion between gender-questioning clients and therapists.

Presenter:
Heather Blessing LMFT has been working with and been an advocate for the LBGTQ community for more than 20 years. In 2006, she met and eventually married her husband, who is transgender. When she became licensed in 2015, working with transgender children became her specialty. She provides trainings and workshops to help others understand what transgender means and how to be supportive.
