Gender Diversity Level III - Treatment of Gender Dysphoria

ID: 5356WEB

It is highly recommended to take this training only after taking Gender Diversity Level II - Overview of a Model for Assessment and Treatment.

This training utilizes specific learning about sub-types of gender dysphoria and other relevant experiences common to transgender clients presented in the Level II webinar to inform Dr. Sasso's treatment model. The model is based on Dr. Sasso's work with the transgender population across the lifespan, using an in-depth assessment of gender dysphoria, expanded developmental history, and assessment of internal gender distress as well as environmental stressors to inform treatment decisions. This webinar provides in-depth case examples of clients of varying ages with diverse gender-related treatment needs. It covers differential diagnosis between primary mental health conditions, impacts of minority stress, and gender dysphoria and discusses the need and process for frequent re-assessment. It provides examples of working with clients with more than one source of minority stress (intersectional identities), working with a medical care team, as well as with families of transgender youth and young adults.

This webinar is the final of a 3-part series.

Learners are recommended to take Level I and Level II or has a strong subject knowledge in this area, before attending Level III.
