    Dear Mental Health Professional,

    You are invited to the upcoming Symposium on Gender Affirming Mental Health Care at Santa Clara University on Friday, November 4th, 2022.  This symposium is intended to offer mental health providers in our community valuable information to learn and deepen your understanding of clients who are questioning their gender or who have already transitioned away from the sex they were assigned at birth. As you navigate this complex topic as clinicians, here at the SCU, we want to create access to quality information and education in this area for the professional mental health community.

    The content of the Symposium will range from basic information about Gender Affirming Care to more complex topics such as the possible medical implications and working with family members of gender expansive people.  

    This event is free to attend and there are up to 5.5 Continuing Education hours (CEs) available to licensed clinicians. See the flier attached for more information. 

    This event will be held in person and will be run in accordance with Santa Clara University's Covid-19 protocols for events on campus.

    Registration is open now!

    If you know of any individuals or organizations who would benefit from participating in this symposium, please feel free to forward this email or the attached flier. Thank you again for your commitment in supporting affirming mental health in our diverse communities.

    Sincerely,

    Being a gender expansive child of any age brings with it a wide range of unique challenges. Many do not know any other kids who don’t fit the gender norms, and this can be a lonely, isolating, and confusing experience. 

    These groups are designed to provide a safe, supportive, fun place for kids to gather with other children who don’t fit our conventional gender definitions. This gives them greater freedom to explore and celebrate their own gender identity.

    Activities are designed to help young children learn more about their relationship with themselves, their own bodies, and with the world around them. Age-appropriate expressive arts, games, books, and discussions will be utilized to facilitate self-understanding, emotional regulation, and social skills development.

    We at Resilient Minds Collective are very excited to be offering teens and young adults the opportunity to develop and practice executive functioning skills with others this summer!

    Clients will learn how to improve their organization, control their emotional responses, prioritize assignments and deadlines, and other skills critical to the improvement of executive functioning. We will also provide space to discuss why this is important for successful relationships and anxiety reduction. 


    This informative and fun 5-week program will run twice weekly, with both in-person and remote options for your health and convenience.  For an additional fee, we will also offer one-to-one remote coaching for those who would like support outside of the group in cases where more support may be needed. 


    Groups will run twice a week for 90 minutes with in-person  sessions  held on Mondays and Wednesdays (12:30 - 2:00 PM or 2:30 - 4:00 PM). Parents or interested individuals can  complete this survey and indicate which times and options would work best for your  summer schedule as this will help us tailor our times to ages and needs. Optional 45-minute virtual individual make-up or additional coaching sessions will be available on Fridays between 9:00 AM - 1:45 PM. Additional fees will apply for Friday sessions.


    The first day of the summer session begins on July 6th and wraps up on August 5th!


    Our Licensed Education Psychologists Darlene Norman, May Nguyen, and Maya Anderson will facilitate the groups. Please come read our bio’s at Resilient Minds Collective for more details about our specialties and background or email us at info@resilientmindscollective.com.
