Clinical Guide for Therapists Working with Gender Questioning Youth

GETA’s Clinical Guide was written by therapists who have worked extensively with LGBT clients. GETA believes that a psychological approach should be the first line of treatment for psychological distress. Our guide offers an alternative to a gender affirming approach, putting forth an accessible, practical framework for clinicians. There is a need for therapists who validate the client as a whole person and who can facilitate an open-ended exploration rather than applying a one-size-fits-all treatment model. Many clinicians want to offer this type of therapeutic process, but may need guidance in how to achieve this stance amidst the contentious landscape. GETA’s Clinical Guide is rooted in established and evidence-based psychotherapeutic traditions.

This webinar will provide a brief overview to the Clinical Guide and we’ll offer case examples and a discussion on working through common issues that arise in therapy with gender-questioning youth.
