Historically, transgender and non-binary identities have been viewed by the medical and mental health community as pathological. Although change has occurred, the cultural narratives around transgender and non-binary remain disparaging, disempowering, and marginalizing. Namely, that people with these identities are born in the wrong bodies. Transgender and non-binary people are not immune to internalizing these narratives which often lead to the development of shame and other mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, to name a few. The goal of this workshop is to utilize countercultural, body positive, and resiliency focused interventions to empower transgender and non binary college students to view their bodies and identities.
