Happy New Year!

 

I am recruiting mental health clinicians who identify as trans/gender

non-conforming for focus group research as part of my MSW thesis. I am

exploring the issue of disclosure of gender identity and its impact on

the therapist¹s sense of efficacy, safety and well-being.

 

Focus Groups will be held:

-Sat. Jan. 25th, First Event Conference in Peabody, MA

(www.firstevent.org)

-Sun., Jan. 26th, Jamaica Plain, MA

-Sat., Feb. 8th, New York, NY

-Sun, Feb. 9th, Northampton, MA

 

If you are a master¹s level clinician who identifies anywhere on the

Trans* spectrum and would like to participate in a 1.5-2 hour focus group

to discuss these issues with others, please contact me at

slurie@smith.edu or by phone at 802-578-8391.
