We’re running a day workshop for therapists, (but teachers, youth workers and social workers might also benefit) on working with children and young people with gender dysphoria and their families.

This event forms part of a weekend on Transgender issues, the preceding day will be on working with gender dysphoria in adults and run by Michelle Bridgman
Attendees will gain an understanding of the issues affecting people who do not fit a binary gender model and/or are transgender.
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 Transgender people. DSM V is being reviewed. Standards of Care are being challenged and the whole picture in the field of transgender 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.
Early booking is advised as places are limited and we expect this event to sell out.
