Play Therapy with Transgender and Gender Expansive Youth - September 10th, 2018


Is Play Therapy with a child who identifies as gender expansive or transgender any different than being in the room with a cisgender child? No. But, there are some additional layers of knowledge you should have before working with this population. This workshop is for providers who want to expand their knowledge of working with the younger LGBTQ+ community as well as their families.
