EPLC| Expanding Gender-affirming Care in First Episode and Clinical High-Risk for Psychosis Treatment
May 6, 2022

There is limited research addressing the needs of gender-expansive individuals in the context of psychosis-spectrum illnesses and treatment. As first episode and clinical high-risk for psychosis (CHR-p) assessment and treatment become more accessible to increasingly diverse populations, there is a need for clinicians to demonstrate greater clinical competency working with individuals across diverse social backgrounds and identities. This talk (a) reviews the diagnostic profile of gender-expansive individuals seeking assessment at the CEDAR Clinic between 2017 and 2020, (b) outlines gender-expansive practices implemented by this clinic to support clinician competency and improve care for gender-expansive patients, and (c) discusses areas for future research on psychosis risk in gender-expansive populations.
