major issues discussed1
Major Issues Discussed
  • Need for web-based resources

(e.g., best practice guidelines, research)

  • Need for strength-based approaches to trans practice and research

(e.g., assessment tools - MMPI - problematic, confront medical model, inclusion of gender identity in DSM?)

  • Students/others with less power having to educate others with more power (e.g., training directors, advisors) and confront transphobia
  • Need trans-ally development and support
  • Micro and macroaggressions - verbal and physical assault

Assessment issues with transgender people

  • Clinical interviewing (e.g., create semi-structured interview questions, address problems with forms, therapist training, reflexivity, awareness)
  • DSM - do not confound trans with mental health and gender with sexual disorders
  • Testing (e.g., renorming assessments for trans folks, develop measures for research with focus on resilience, writing position papers on test administration/interpretation)
