CSCSW October Salon - "Gender-Affirming Mental Health for Transgender and Gender Expansive Clients"

Presented by Cass Daniels, LCSW

NASWCO Chapter 0 183

The transgender and gender-expansive community face immense challenges when attempting to access adequate mental health services. Many in the trans community feel misunderstood by clinicians or even harmed by a lack of gender-affirming knowledge. This salon will support social work professionals in learning how to be more validating, welcoming, confident and skilled when working with the trans community. I will cover topics related to the distinction between sex, gender, and gender expression, how to best support a trans client, and information needed to write a WPATH letter for clients seeking gender-affirming medical care. This presentation will cover the basics of transness for clinicians who have not yet started to learn about trans identity as well as higher-level information for those that are interested in supporting clients on their transition journey.
