Abstract

This workshop will explore what mental health has done poorly in the past forty years in relation to the treatment of trans individuals, but also the ways in which clinicians have and can continue to support the growth, well–being, and progress towards self–actualization that is the hope for all clients, but with a focus on best practices with gender variant clients. I will begin by exploring language, providing participants with a safe space to explore internalized bias. Participants will leave with some readily applicable strategies.
