Beyond the Acronyms: What You Should Know About Gender, Sex, and Sexual Orientation  

Gender, sex, and sexual orientation are important identities for clients, but improvements are needed for how to address these topics in therapy. In addition, various aspects of gender socialization, sex differences, and sexual orientation are often conflated despite the negative ramifications.

This program will discuss research outcomes and practical skills related to differentiating and working with issues and identities related to gender, sex, and sexual orientation. These include: gender-related outcomes such as conformity to particular “masculine” and “feminine” norms, the gender socialization process, the science of sex differences, and improving practices for working with gender and sexual minority individuals (e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*) as well as cisgender and heterosexual clients alike.

This program is designed for practitioners (social workers, counselors, psychologists) and other (para)professionals serving clients in which gender, sex, and/or sexual orientation may be of relevance.
