Featuring Li Brookens, LCSW

Participants will be exploring current mental health practices aligning with optimal health for our transgender clients. After initial teachings on gender, gender development, and transgender identity and expression, attendees will participate in a gender experiential group discussion as part of the learning.


  1. Identify core transgender health needs in mental health and society. 
  2. Expand core concepts of gender identity and expression beyond binary, essentialist thinking. 
  3. Differentiate between Gender Dysphoria and Gender Expansiveness. 
  4. Evaluate the nature of gender identity and expression within clients with regard to tensions between mind, body, and society. 
  5. Utilize methods of facilitating gender expansive dialogue with all clients.
About the Speaker:
Li Brookens is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Group Psychotherapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado. In 2017, they received a Community Service Award for their work with the transgender community from the Colorado Society for Clinical Social Work. Li has advanced skills in working with LGBTQ+ identities, young adults, and groups. Li works collaboratively with clients weaving together psychodynamic theory and postmodern therapy using a social justice lens that centers on marginalized identities. "I believe that each client I work with has an inner knowing that is seeking to be uncovered and understood. I see my job as helping my clients excavate that knowledge so they can empower themselves to make meaningful changes in their lives."  You can learn more about our speaker at librookens.com.
