Register for Gender Odyssey Los Angeles and attend the Building Allies workshop on Saturday!

Becoming an Active-Ally to the Trans and Nonbinary communities for Mental Health Service Providers is an experiential workshop that invites participants to learn and implement new vocabulary, map and expand their understanding of trans and gender-nonconforming identities, engage active ally-focused practices, and develop skills that can be used and referenced in therapeutic work. Each exercise within the workshop is designed to engage participants in critical thinking regarding their identity as a mental health professional in relation to trans and gender-nonconforming individuals. These exercises are designed to work through the lens of deconstructing privilege.
