Gender Dysphoria: Overview of a Model for Assessment and Treatment

ID: 5372WEB

This program is the second in a series, and is recommended (but not required) after taking the Introduction to Gender Diversity webinar (#5371WEB) for those who do not have a strong basis of prior in-depth understanding of gender identity. It will bring participants beyond considerations of gender identity to begin developing a deep sense of gender dysphoria; the primary distress impacting the mental health and wellbeing of those who choose to undergo social and/or medical gender transition, and the primary reason gender diverse individuals seek gender-related mental healthcare. It will explore the experience of dysphoria in depth, as well as the opposing experience of gender euphoria. It will then cover how these concepts can be explored with clients to not only assess dysphoria clinically, but develop a targeted treatment plan based on different types of dysphoric experiences. It highlights a number of areas in which the treatment of gender dysphoria differs from traditional psychotherapy practice, requiring systemic interventions on a number of levels, and coordination of care between a variety of providers. This program is perfect for those who want to take their work with gender diverse individuals to the next level, becoming a nuanced, skilled evaluator, prepared to develop individualized treatment plans for these individuals, and for those who want to develop strong assessment skills before embarking on working with this population.
