Standard: $49.00
Members: $29.00

Description

This session will examine the resiliency factors and the strategies transgender (trans) college students use to navigate gender-dichotomous collegiate environments. The multiple intersections of college trans* students and their various social identities are highlighted as well as the importance of coping strategies for a successful college experience. One of the presenters identifies as trans* and will share his insights as well as provide first hand suggestions that will inform and assist college counselors, student affairs professionals, faculty, and administrators working with college trans* students. Additional recommendations such as the (un)learning of normative gender constructs, the use of appropriate language in the curricula, and suggestions for providing a safe environment, inside and outside the classroom, will also be explored. Affirmative- and resilience-based counseling and “helping” approaches for working with trans* college students will conclude this training.

Learning Objectives:

  • Awareness and understand the intersection of multiple identities of college trans students.

  • Strategies that trans students use to navigate the campus and the college experience.

  • Begin the process of (un)learning the use of traditional gender constructs.

Speaker(s):
