Do you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about working with clients who identify as gender non-conforming? This webinar is designed to help professionals become familiar with terminology and gain an understanding of working with people challenged by, or experiencing non-conforming gender identities.

Description: We are all becoming more aware that gender diversity is not limited to a binary definition of male and female. Gender is much more complicated. In our current culture there is more and more fluidity around gender and yet at the same time we are being faced with increasing prejudice and fear. Working with people is important, but can be challenging as well as rewarding. Do you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about working with adult clients who identify as gender non-conforming?

The program will combine theory and experiential learning. It will include some background to clinical thinking and how treatment in the 1960s evolved into current treatment pathways. We will help you become familiar with terminology, an understanding of what your clients may be experiencing from the perspective of people who are assigned male or female at birth, but who do not identify with those assigned genders as well as individuals who have a non-binary or non-conforming gender identity. Most importantly, we aim to illustrate how you can work with and support them.

The relationship between sex and gender is often confused and we will explore the differences as well as the intersectionality between sex and gender. In order to give you the space to feel safe in exploring these issues, we will provide case studies for you to work with in small groups or triads so that you leave feeling more confident in your ability to work with this demographic.

Learning objectives:

• Gain an understanding of working with people challenged by or experiencing non-conforming gender identities
• Understand the relationship and intersectionality i. e. the interaction between sexuality and gender
• Feel comfortable with using the terminology
• Develop an understanding of the experience your clients may be going through
• Understand the ethical and legal guidelines for working with this group and how to apply them
