Don’t Refer Me Out: Working with Transgender and Gender-Diverse Youth and their Families (CE 3)

Jessica R. Rothstein, Psy.D and Ray Stirba Moneypenny, LCSW-C

Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM

This CE satisfies the MD requirement for Psychologists for cultural competence.

Beginner/Intermediate Level

Target audience: Therapists who see children, adolescents, and youth, Family therapists, providers, who treat adults only and who would like to treat parents of transgender and gender diverse youth

What do you do when you receive a call from caregiver of a transgender or gender-diverse youth? Often these individuals are struggling to find someone who has an opening, or is in network, and they can be quite assertive in finding care. What happens when you have a youth in care, and all of sudden they express that they don’t think they are cisgender? For many providers, this results in an ethical dilemma. Therapists want to be able to treat this population but they have no (or limited) training on transgender affirming care. How will a therapist know if they have the requisite skills?

This workshop will help participants fully explore this ethical dilemma. Upon completion, providers will be better equipped to make a determination as to when it is appropriate for them to keep a patient in care, and when the client will be best served with a referral out, and/or engagement with an additional treatment provider. In addition, this course will cover some relevant foundational clinical skills and terminology. The presenters will take a strength based approach highlighting a family systems perspective to helping both the youth and their family navigate transition and the coming out process.

Objectives

● Describe the criteria for gender dysphoria as a diagnosis and be able to assess the presence of these symptoms.

● Identify the presence of gender euphoria and describe how gender dysphoria and gender euphoria are related.

● Identify the ethical issues in regards to choosing to work with transgender and gender diverse youth and their family, or deciding to refer them out.
