Gender in Neuropsychology: An Introductory Conversation
Christine Ghilain, Ph.D., ABPP-CN
Dr. Ghilain is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist who has given over 20 presentations and invited talks at both national and international conferences. She is a lifespan neuropsychologist working with infants through older adults providing comprehensive evaluations in both clinical and forensic contexts. Her most recent book was published by Routledge in 2021 to promote competence in psychological testing procedures for those neuropsychologists working with psychometrists. Her research and clinical interests include refining assessment practices to enhance diagnostic accuracy and achieve optimal outcomes for individuals with diverse neurological conditions across the developmental life span. She has a passion for training and promoting competence in the field of neuropsychology.
This presentation is an introductory conversation for clinicians working with individuals who are exploring their gender identity, or who may not identify with their assigned sex at birth (ASAB). The goal of this presentation is to empower clinicians with up-to-date information, recommendations for practice enhancement, and support in their ongoing work with diverse clients. Resources for ongoing learning will also be provided.
Learning Objectives: By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Define differences in terminology around gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation
2. Identify the ways to update office paperwork and staff training to be more inclusive of diverse clients.
3. Engage with clients in a supportive and gender affirming way.
This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, physicians and graduate students. It will be presented at an introductory level, meant for those with little prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict of interest for this program.
