This workshop – for all levels of professionals – is designed to establish basic understandings of gender diversity and approaches for applying them to professional practice. Through direct presentation, video clips of youth and others talking about gender, and group reflection and discussion, this workshop takes participants through a review of basic gender concepts and terminology. With this solid background in place, the session describes concrete methods for applying the lens of gender diversity to mental health practices, including characteristics of gender affirming environments and approaches for working with families and caregivers.
This course is open to professionals and will be taught by Joel Baum, MS
