    Description

    The recent increase in empirical research on the transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people’s mental health concerns and affirmative mental health services offer CBT therapists an opportunity to serve these clients with an evidence-based approach for the first time. After a brief introduction to terminology and TGD communities’ lived experience, this course will describe the community-based, empirically-derived Trans Collaborations Adaptations for Psychological Services as applied to case-formulation driven CBT for adults. Topics will include incorporating TGD intersectional identities into case formulations, adaptations for common CBT interventions, affirming use of cognitive restructuring around experiences of marginalization, therapists’ implicit assumptions about gender, and progress monitoring tools. We will also address assessing the practice environment to be TGD-affirming. Although the emphasis will be on CBT for common outpatient mental health concerns, we will include some discussion of the CBT therapist’s potential contribution to social, legal, and medical gender affirmation.

    Learning Objectives

    After this course, attendees will be able to:

    1. Incorporate the lived experience and gender identity of TGD clients into their case formulation.

    2. Adapt at least two (2) common CBT interventions to be TGD-affirming.

    3. Use TGD-specific progress monitoring and adapt at least two (2) general tools to meet the needs of TGD clients.

    4. Apply at least two (2) TGD-affirming practice adaptations to their own setting and clinical approach.

    Presenters



    Debra A. Hope received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York: University at Albany in 1990 under the mentorship of Richard Heimberg. After clinical internship at Medical College of Pennsylvania/Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute, she joined the faculty at the Department of Psychology at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During her first two decades, her research investigated psychopathology and treatment of anxiety disorders, especially social anxiety. She is lead author, with Richard Heimberg and Cindy Turk, on the Oxford University Press Treatments That Work Series, Managing Social Anxiety: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach therapist manual and client workbook now in its 3rd edition. In the early 2000’s, Dr. Hope began to shift her focus to addressing mental health disparities for LGBTQ communities. Then in 2014, she co-founded Trans Collaborations (go.unl.edu/transcollaborations), a community-based research partnership to address health disparities for transgender and gender diverse (TGD) adults in underserved areas with Nathan Woodruff and Richard Mocarski. The work of Trans Collaborations has been funded by federal, university, and foundation grants. Trans Collaborations is currently conducting a small randomized controlled clinical trial of CBT for anxiety, depression, and marginalization stress for TGD adults. Dr. Hope has over 143 publications and several edited books. Until very recently when she became Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Graduate Education, she maintained a private practice. She continues to supervise doctoral students in the Rainbow Clinic.



    Nathan Woodruff is co-founder of Trans Collaborations and chair of the Local Community Board. He is a long-time community and social justice leader and diversity workshop presenter. Mr. Woodruff’s leadership of the Local Community Board has facilitated their deep and productive partnership with academic team members, leading to rich community-based participatory research. Mr. Woodruff has 16 peer-reviewed publications through his work on Trans Collaborations.
