Presented by PCSG (Formerly known as GLAP) division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in partnership with Hunter College and The LGBT Social Science & Public Policy Center, the Trans*Literate symposium will educate, inform, and expand dialogue on the topic of working clinically with the transgender communities and understanding transgender experienced through psychoanalytic theory. Mental health clinicians are invited to submit proposals for workshops, papers, and presentations on the topic of how issues related to trans* experience has informed complicated, and illuminated their work in individual, group, and family clinical practice.
The 2014 Trans*Literate Symposium will focus on clinical work across the transgender spectrum. We will highlight work among/within/across sub-communities of race, ethnicity, class, age, gender & gendered identities, ability, and sexual orientation. We want to specifically increase the visibility of trans communities of color, trans youth & elders, and trans women. Our previous symposium held February 25, 2012 at Baruch College in Manhattan drew 131 attendees from across the United States including 28 presenters leading 18 different presentations on clinical issues affecting various transgender communities.
