Beyond Trans 101:
Mental Health Practice and Advocacy with Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) Clients
Michael L. Hendricks, Ph.D., ABPP
October 12, 2018 at 10:00 AM
In this continuing education presentation, Dr. Hendricks discusses mental health practice with transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) clients beyond a Trans 101 introductory perspective. He discusses the typical issues TGNC clients present, in addition to the accompanying challenges and opportunities in mental health practice with TGNC people. The workshop will provide participants with a theoretical framework that addresses both the health disparities of TGNC people and ways to foster resilience, with particular emphasis on the assessment of internalized transprejudice and lifespan concerns. Case examples and strategies clinicians may use to advocate on behalf of their patients/clients will be utilized to highlight application of clinical skills.
Dr. Michael L. Hendricks is a clinical psychologist in private practice at the Washington Psychological Center, P.C., in Washington, D.C. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA) and a past president of APA’s Division 44 (Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity), and of Section VII (Clinical Emergencies and Crises) of APA’s Division 12 (Society of Clinical Psychology). He served on the APA Task Force that developed the Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People. He has conducted research with TGNC people and is the lead author on the seminal paper on the minority stress model for transgender individuals. In 2015, he was awarded an American Psychological Association Presidential Citation for his work on minority stress and suicide risk among TGNC individuals. He currently represents Division 44 on the APA Council of Representatives. A primary focus of his clinical practice involves work with TGNC adolescents and adults.
