Types of issues that can be addressed in supervision or consultation

Here are some situations in which clinical supervision could be helpful:

Children and youth

  • A student at my school is experiencing harassment and bullying related to transphobia. What can I do for him?
  • A 13-year-old individual I’ve been counseling just told me that they feel they are nonbinary, are afraid of their parents’ reaction, and are feeling suicidal. How can we help him?
  • I meet a family whose 7-year-old child, assigned female at birth, identifies as male and presents themselves as such at school. The child has adopted a male name, insists on going to the boys’ bathroom and gets angry if he is referred to as a female. Parents don’t know what to do. How can we help this family? This school?
  • I am accompanying a nonbinary person who would like to access certain gender affirmation surgeries. How can I support their request?

Couple and family

  • I work in child protection services, and I have a meeting scheduled soon with a family where one member of a couple is undergoing a transition. How can I properly assess the impact on the child?
  • I am working with a couple where one of the partners has just revealed to their spouse their desire to undergo a transition. They wonder about the best way to discuss it with their children.
  • I see a 15-year-old who has been depressed and isolated since his parent transitioned last year.

Counselling & Coming out

  • I work in a shelter for abused women. We have been approached by someone who presents themselves as very masculine but identifies as a transgender woman and says she needs our services. How do we respond to this person’s request?
  • I see a young person who tells me that she knows she is trans and informs me that she wants to access hormone treatment. Do I need to confirm that she is trans?

Rights

  • I work in child protection, and I have been tasked with evaluating a family in conflict regarding the behavior of their 6-year-old boy who “dresses up as a girl and plays with girl toys.” The parents are separated. The father reported his ex-wife to us; he accuses her of “forcing their son to play with girls’ toys because she always wanted a girl and was disappointed when she found out she was carrying a boy”. How can we assess this situation in a fair manner and in the best interest of the child?
