Moving trans families and loved ones towards acceptance: Clinical strategies for helping clients navigate grief and fear.
Are you a mental health professional who is feeling uncertain about how to best support a client as they navigate their loved one’s gender identity/transition?
When a transgender individual “comes out,” there can be painful challenges within the family/relational system.

Clinical work can have a significant impact in helping family members and/or loved ones move toward deeper acceptance. In this session, practical tools are provided that you can begin to use with family members or partners.
