The frameworks of gender and sexuality have shifted dramatically in recent years from discrete categories to conceptualizing both aspects of identity as a spectrum. Many therapists feel the need to play catch-up with these cultural shifts in order to understand our clients’ experiences and struggles. Becoming familiar with the new terminology and concepts is a critical first step. Applications to the clinical setting comes next. This symposium will begin with a keynote presentation offering state-of-the-art information on sexual and gender identity by Sidney Trantham, PhD and Acey Mercer, LMSW. A case presentation will follow with a panel of discussants to comment. Finally, there will be two workshop slots in the afternoon offering a range of presentations on specific topics in working with clients across the gender and sexuality spectra.

The Symposium costs $95-160 and provides 6 CEs. NEAFAST Members get a $10 discount (discount code provided through Member emails). **Register before 9/14 for the Early Bird Discount.** Hosted by the Couple & Family Institute of New England (CFINE) in Northampton, MA. More info on their website.
