"Gender Dysphoria and Austism Spectrum Disorder: Best Clinical Practices for Assessment and Treatment"

This program will be held on Friday, February 2, 2018 from 8:30am – 4:30pm. Registration opens at 7:30am.

Presented by Transcending Identities by Dr. Eunice Avilés, hosted by the Tiffany Club of New England at their annual First Event Conference.

The professional training program at FE16 and FE17 received rave reviews from all who attended. The team of very experienced gender specialists comprised of Diane Ellaborn, LICSW, DCSW, Joanna Frost, LICSW, and Eunice Avilés, Psy.D, LMHC, are once again creating a new program for FE18.

This conference is designed for professionals in the field of gender and autism, including therapists, educators and other service providers who work with children, adolescents, as well as adults. Mental health and medical providers that would like to be better prepared to address these topics with their clients should they present in their practice are encouraged to attend. Parents are also welcome to attend.

This training will feature cutting edge research by our keynote speaker, John F. Strang, Psy.D, lead researcher for the “Initial Clinical Guidelines for Co-Occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder and Gender Dysphoria or Incongruence in Adolescents.”  This will be followed by a full day of presentations of guidelines for assessing clients with co-occurring Gender Dysphoria and Autism Spectrum Disorder, treatment recommendations and specialized care considerations for these clients progressing to live in their affirmed gender through social and/or medical transition.

Continental breakfast and a networking luncheon will be provided as part of your registration.

There will be ample time in the program for participants to ask questions and present cases for consultation by a panel of experienced clinicians.  Please email us your cases before the conference to: dr.euniceaviles@euniceaviles.net

CEU’s will be offered and are pending for LICSW's, LCSW's, LMFT's, LMHC's & APA's. Please check with us if you want to make sure we will provide CEU's for you.

Limited scholarship for a reduced fee are available for volunteers. Apply by 1/4/18 to: dr.euniceaviles@euniceaviles.net

We highly encourage all attendees to pre-register. This is to make sure we can estimate the proper number of people for the continental breakfast & networking luncheon. If you are planning to walk in you should check the website to see if registration is closed or email us.

Note: This is a different registration than the general First Event program.
