Providing Compassionate, Effective, and Collaborative Gender Transition Support Services for Adults 


By: Malakai Coté, Ph.D.



This presentation aims to help practitioners explore Standards of Care in working with diverse transgender adults (e.g., binary, non-binary, agender individuals) seeking medical intervention and address key elements within ecological behavioral health assessment for gender diverse individuals. This training will assist practitioners in working with clients to go beyond “rehearsed narratives” to foster openness and collaboration in making referrals for gender confirmation surgeries. 


Learning Objectives 

1. Describe and discuss recent research and clinical insight into areas of risk and resilience for transgender and gender diverse adults with attention paid to intersecting identities and diverse life experiences. 

2. From initial contact, utilize collaborative and mindfulness approaches to encourage therapeutic trust building. 

3. Describe World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care, Version 7 Guidelines for assessing and providing support documentation for adults seeking medical gender confirmation interventions. 

4. Develop an ecological assessment and aftercare planning protocol to promote client postoperative success and wellness. 


2 CE credits will be provided pending approval from CPA.
