Two unique workshops in one weekend with two authorities in working with gender identity.
On Saturday Michelle Bridgman will offer:
Working with Gender Identity
Attendees will gain an understanding of the issues affecting people who do not fit a binary gender model and/or are transgendered.
You will gain an understanding of: -
Terminology Current clinical treatment pathways for people questioning their gender identity Pathways for those seeking gender re-assignment Practical ideas that can be applied in your own therapy Practice A Case study How Psychotherapy can be effective in this field Your own fears & concerns How to embrace those fears and concerns and how to work with them
There has never been a more important time in the treatment of Transgendered people. DSM V is being reviewed. Standards of Care are being challenged and the whole picture in the field of transgendered health is under scrutiny.
Most importantly, you will leave feeling more confident in your ability to work in what is often seen as a very challenging field whilst, at the same time, enjoying an opportunity to explore your fears and concerns in a supportive environment with one of the world’s most experienced clinicians on these issues.
On Sunday Dr Victoria Holt will offer a day on:
Working with Gender Dysphoric Children, Adolescents and their Parents.
This day will help participants develop a greater understanding of how to work with gender dysphoric individuals, including children, adolescents and families where a parent has transitioned. It will provide a framework of how to work with other agencies including education and child and adolescent mental health services and will help participants understand the developmental trajectories and associated difficulties that can be present in young people with gender dysphoria.
This day will outline therapeutic and physical support that is available in this area including latest advances in treatment and research.
This workshop will improve both knowledge and confidence of working in this often challenging area.
