Words Can Hurt: Staying Competent in LGBTGEQIAP+ Terminology for CE Credit

Is it sexual or affectional orientation? What is asexual, pansexual, genderqueer? What does the GE stand for? When working with LGBTGEQIAP+ people, the terminology is not only expansive, it has changed quickly, leaving many counselors and mental health professionals unsure of appropriate terms and their meanings.

Beyond the Binary: A Primer for Counseling Transgender and Gender Expansive People for CE Credit

Very often mental health professionals are not feeling prepared by their graduate programs to work with trans and gender expansive (TGE) people. With numerous gender identities, changing terminology, and recent scientific discoveries surrounding gender, it is incredibly important that counselors continue to stay up to date. New and seasoned professionals alike must continue to develop awareness and understanding of TGE clients, as well as strategies and skills for a trans-affirmative counseling practice.

  • It was informative hearing about the process of writing letters for clients who want HRT and how to make yourself and your office more affirming for this population.
