And while a Biden administration seems intentional on protecting the rights of queer people on a national level, if, say, Ron DeSantis gets elected as President of the United States next November, there’s a high likelihood that sanctions against the queer, trans, and gender non-binary community, and services providers who provide comprehensive mental and behavioral health services for this community, will be high on his agenda.
Which leads to the following questions:
1) In general, how prepared is the psychotherapy community for something like this?
2) More specifically, what are tools and resources that the psychotherapy community might need to improve their support for trans and gender-non binary people in the face of growing sanctions and eliminations of human rights?
