Transgender is an umbrella term that covers a wide variety of gender identities and sexual orientations. As with all segments of the LGBT community, transgender people are increasingly coming out and embracing who they are. And as with any other group of people, many of them will need counseling at some point in their lives. This course is designed to assist mental health professionals in providing transgender patients with necessary treatment while keeping in mind their special needs and the challenges they face. Participants will also receive an overview of scientific theories relating to the development of transgender children, adolescents, and adults.
