Aaron speaks with Dr. Cortny Stark on her program of research examining trauma-informed care with trans and gender-expansive youth. We also discussed the history of oppression of folx within the LGBTQ+ community, as well as research that clearly indicates that conversion therapy causes immense harm. Dr. Stark provides some actionable tips for how counselors can work to transform their therapy practices (or schools) to better align with the principles of trauma-informed care.
