The purpose of this project is to develop a workshop to train mental health practitioners to effectively help transgendered clients. A review of the literature on transgendered mental health is provided, including the history of transsexualism and the gender identity diagnosis, the social and psychosocial experiences of transgendered individuals, biological and surgical treatments, and recommendations for counselling. The format of the workshop, the target audience, and ethical concerns are described. Finally, a detailed description of the workshop, outlining the intended schedule, activities, and lectures is presented. --Leaf ii.
