Transgender issues in counselor preparation
Counselor Education and Supervision
The emergent consciousness and political activism emanating from the transgender community have important implications for counselor education. Treatment issues are no longer exclusively centered on aiding “gender dysphoric” individuals to assume either a “male” or “female” gender but rather on exploring alternative gender identifications and options. Counselor educators and supervisors need to model for their students a “trans-positive” approach to counseling that affirms and celebrates individuals with nontraditional gender identities. © 2002 American Counseling Association.
