    Dr. Krishna Kary (they/them) is a Counseling Psychologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Services THRIVE Clinic where they focus on clinical services for LGBTQ+ community members, supervision and training, and consultation. Additionally, they are Adjunct Faculty at the University of San Francisco’s Master’s in Counseling program where they teach courses related to gender and sexuality. Dr. Kary received their Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from UC Santa Barbara where they conducted research on clinical interventions for reducing internalized stigma for LGBTQ+ people. They completed their internship at UCLA’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and then went on to complete their postdoctoral fellowship in the Gender and Sexual Identity specialty track at Stanford University CAPS. Dr. Kary seeks to understand the varied needs of folx across the spectra of gender and sexuality, including barriers to accessing care, challenges in navigating outness and stigma, and intersections with other aspects of identity and culture.

    Course Outline Timeline (Pacific):

    12pm-12:10pm: Introductions and logistics

    12:10pm-1pm: Psychoeducation

    1pm-1:20pm: Vignette Discussion

    1:20-1:30pm: Q & A


    Gender identity, pronouns, and medical transition have received increased visibility in recent years within the field of psychology, on social media platforms, and in our public policies.

    Despite this increased visibility, many gender expansive individuals, particularly youth, continue to experience challenges on multiple fronts including internally via stigma and shame, interpersonally in navigating transition and outness with family, friends, and partners, and systemically as they encounter barriers to accessing medical care. Dr. Kary will offer a gender-inclusive approach to conceptualizing gender and the challenges that often accompany gender expansiveness with emphasis on youth and intersections with culture and other aspects of identity. This presentation will review specific gender-inclusive practices and case vignettes.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

    1. Describe an inclusive, spectrum-based model of gender identity to use in case formulations;

    2. Describe common challenges facing gender expansive individuals related to transition and outness;

    3. Identify 3 best practice approaches when working with gender expansive youth and families; and

    4. Identify 3 considerations related to the intersection of gender identity and other cultural factors.
