Working Systemically with Nonbinary Clients

This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of working with nonbinary clients. This will include an initial brief introduction to terminology, to the current WPATH Standards of Care, and to dominant treatment protocols for nonbinary clients in the US. We will discuss the issues that nonbinary clients and their families might bring to therapy and how to address these competently and systemically. The role that family therapists might play in the care of nonbinary clients and their families will be addressed, including the role that LMFTs might play in supporting clients who may pursue medical or legal transition processes. The importance of liaising with other providers, such as medical providers, will also be addressed. Participants will be invited to reflect on their own gender histories, identities and expressions. The webinar will be highly participatory and participants are encouraged to bring their questions and curiosity. Ethical issues in relation to power, dominant discourses of gender and the historical oppression and marginalization of nonbinary people will be woven through the webinar and will be addressed from an intersectional perspective.
