Workshop Description:

This presentation will focus on the care of trans-expansive individuals with a particular emphasis on ethics. As mental health professionals, it is imperative to know and be aware of the use of language within the trans community, as well as how to navigate the therapeutic relationship and provide adequate, yet affirming care. Our presentation will highlight the guidelines of the American Psychological Association and the WPATH Standards of Care. This workshop fulfills 1.5 of the 3 hours necessary according to the KRS 319 ethics/risk management requirement for psychology professionals.

Workshop Objectives:

Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Participants will be able to identify strengths, challenges, and systemic forces that impact the trans-expansive experience.
  • Participants will gain knowledge about the impact of intersectional identities (race, sexual orientation, SES, etc.) on the lived experience of trans-expansive folks.
  • Participants will gain familiarity with the ethical guidelines and recommendations of the American Psychological Association and WPATH Standards of Care related to work with trans-expansive people.
  • Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own internal experience, identities, privileges, and how these may interact with trans-expansive individuals in the therapy room.
