This interactive workshop will address the unique clinical needs of transgender and gender expansive (TGE) college students experiencing body image disturbances and eating disorder behaviors. We will explore the role of gender dysphoria and trauma from gender minority stressors in the development of eating disorders, provide several case vignettes, and share our gender affirmative model for treating our TGE clients.
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Describe the interaction between gender dysphoria, gender minority stressors, and eating disorders; and 2. Apply the gender-affirmative approach to traditional therapeutic practices for working with body image and disordered eating.
