About the Event:

As a heavily marginalized group with unique clinical concerns who have increasingly come into focus in public discourse in recent years, transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients can be an intimidating population to work with for the uninitiated. This presentation will provide a broad overview of important information about gender identity. Topics to be discussed include basic terminology, a look at the wide range of gender identities that exist beyond the gender binary, and an exploration of what it means for gender to be a social construct that has been understood differently by different cultures throughout human history. Information about best practices for working effectively and ethically with TGNC clients will also be presented.

Learning Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

1.      Use appropriate language with clients that is respectful of the diversity of identities and experiences in the TGNC community.

2.      Name and define at least two of the wide range of non-binary and culture-specific gender identities recognized in the TGNC community.

3.      Identify one’s own positions of privilege and at least one way in which that privilege can be utilized to increase accessibility of services for TGNC clients.

4.      Apply an understanding of the idea of gender as a social construct that differs across time and culture to validate the identities of TGNC clients.
