Gray Area Thinking™ and “Transgender 101”
Join national speaker and “inclusionist” Ellen Krug as she conducts a two-part presentation on inclusivity and personal perspective-building. This is a must-attend education and enrichment event for anyone who wants to “get it right” relative to living and providing therapy services in a more inclusive world.
Part 1: “Gray Area Thinking”™–Understanding how humans group and label those who are “different” from “us” and learning a toolset for thinking more inclusively.
Part 2: “Transgender 101”—A firsthand account of what it means to be “trans.” Incorporating her own story, Ellie offers tips on how to be welcoming as more transgender people are “coming out.”
