Approved for 4 NYS & 4 AASECT CE Units!
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
In this workshop we will explore an overview of transgender care issues and build skills to work more effectively with trans-communities. We will examine and assess engagement barriers that are often present when working with trans identified clients and how to better improve our practice. We will also discuss current issues impacting the trans community. Topics we will touch upon include: language and pronouns, how transphobia impacts healthcare access, recognizing internal gender bias and how it effects the treatment of clients.

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Utilizing both research and personal practice, this workshop will explore gender-affirming surgeries currently available to trans patients; we will discuss various types of feminization surgeries, as well as top surgeries and genitalia-focused surgeries. We will then have a conversation about sexual enjoyment for trans patients who do not have surgery as well as sexual enjoyment after surgery. This workshop is appropriate for mental health providers who are new to working with trans clients and providers who already have a strong practice with the trans and gender non-conforming community. Please note that this presentation may include some graphic photos.
