Teaching Self Affirmations for Gender Dysphoria in a Clinical Setting: Teaching the “I Am”

Saturday, Jun 23rd 2018, 1:30pm – 2:50pm, Cypress

Clients experiencing gender dysphoria can have a challenging time expressing self-affirmations and self-love. This workshop will use evidence-based clinical interventions such as Gestalt therapy and mindful self-compassion to teach attendees how to process self-affirmations with clients with severe gender dysphoria. In changing from the clinician’s “you are” to the client’s “I am,” clients will leave sessions with an ability to practice self-compassionate statements. Katie Leikam, LCSW, will also explore case studies where self-affirmations have been helpful in developing clients’ ability to have self-love, self-compassion, and increased self-esteem through gender dysphoria. Attendees will leave with an understanding of practical tools and interventions for teaching clients to make self-affirmations during therapy.
