Whether we realize it or not, everyone has a unique experience of gender. To be competent and ethical social workers, we must be prepared to affirm and support the wide and natural variations that exist in our world, our clients, and in our offices.
. In this class, we will explore the constructs around gender and the limits of our society’s binary model. Participants will examine how people frame their gender narratives and identities, including those of gender-expansive children and youth. We will discuss best practices for support or treatment for clients who may seek emotional, social, medical or surgical transitions. You will leave the workshop better prepared to be a sensitive, educated and affirming provider and citizen in our beautifully diverse worldClass size is limited to 50.
