As queer, trans and non-binary individuals become more visible in our society and our groups, therapists may want to consider, whether and if so how, to disclose their own positions to clients. A panel of LGBTQ+ therapists will open the dialogue by sharing their experiences and offering different theoretical approaches regarding self-disclosure.

Learning Objectives
The participant will be able to:
  1. Compare risks and therapeutic benefits associated with therapist self-disclosure of gender identity and sexual orientation, when working with LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ clients.
  2. Identify the role of the group leader in developing group norms that achieve equity for marginalized groups and individuals.
  3. Understand and use the language that enables social justice (eg. Non-normative pronouns).
  4. Identify resources for increasing their competence as gender-affirming therapists.
