Gender-Inclusive Wilderness Therapy: Serving Trans, Non-binary, and gender-expansive youth and their families

All-gender adolescent groups in wilderness therapy can work! Based upon one year of working with gender-expansive youth in wilderness therapy, this session will address common questions, challenges, lessons learned, and how to support students, consultants, and families through the process of learning, growing, and healing. This session will go beyond the basics of gender-expansive definitions and moves to the reduction of barriers to treatment, all-gender milieu development, and best practices for gender diverse families and practices.
