The Transgender Institute is pleased to announce the addition of another therapist! Please join us in welcoming Patti Concannon. Patti completed her degree in counseling psychology at Avila University in Kansas City, Missouri. Her early experience was helping college students at Avila, then adults, teens, and children in crisis during their stays at Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital.
Our big news is that on May 18th and 19th of 2014, The Transgender Institute will present Against All Odds, its First Annual Symposium and Conference. The symposium is geared towards gender therapists, psychiatrists, counselors, psychologists and other clinicians, and the conference towards the transgender community. Surgeons and other specialists are invited to present their services to colleagues and the community. This 2-day event will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, the beautiful city of fountains resplendent in its loveliest season. We are inviting both established gender therapists who want to update and fine-tune their skills, and beginning clinicians and students who would like to specialize in gender therapy to attend. Gender Certification through the Transgender Institute and CEUs will be available at the event. The conference will include many workshops for transgender individuals and their friends, families and allies. This 2-day event will conclude with a gala banquet and dance. Please contact The Transgender Institute for information regarding registration and housing.
