  1. Describe approaches to gender-affirming hormone treatments and gender-affirming surgical interventions

Workshop Description:

Dr. Ren Massey is offering a training series on working with Transgender and Gender Diverse (T/GD) adults, teens, and adolescents. This one-hour program on hormonal and surgical treatment for adults and older adolescents is an excerpt from the 6-hour Part I training on treating T/GD adults. In this highly informative hour, Dr. Massey provides foundational knowledge in hormonal and surgical treatments in an accessible manner for mental healthcare professionals and other non-medical audiences.

Competency with adult T/GD clients is a criterion of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health for professionals working with T/GD youth. An essential aspect of work with T/GD adults and youth entails grasping the range of possibilities of hormonal and surgical treatments. Dr. Massey gives an overview of the reversible and irreversible effects as well as risks and benefits in recommending such treatments. He also discusses the importance of clients’ having realistic expectations in their satisfaction with medical intervention outcomes. Some ethical issues, such as fertility ramifications, are also considered.

Please note: This workshop will include open and candid discussion of and references to human bodies, anatomical parts, and sexual functioning.
