    Join Rae Bowerman (pronouns they/them) for an informational session regarding terminology used by and about the gender-expansive community and their inclusion in the transgender community. Topics include definitions and usage of affirming language; approaches to inclusive care; the concept of having a "valid" identity; and providing respectful and responsive therapeutic services. 

    Learning objectives. Participants will:

    • learn strategies for incorporating affirming, culturally-responsive language into their interactions with gender-expansive clients.
    • increase their ability to identify and correctly use terminology associated with the gender-expansive community.
    • understand the significance and intersectionality of sex assigned at birth, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender presentation, and gender expression.

Rae’s business practice, GENEX Therapeutic Solutions, currently provides consulting and trainings, and--upon clinical licensure--will provide a trauma-informed, somatic approach to therapy with a emphasis on gender, sex, and sexuality in the LGBTQ+ community.
