Affirmation or Acceptance? Transprejudice and the Person-Centred Approach 

Dr. Jeffrey Cornelius-White presents the 2024 Mary Kilborn Lecture, which will explore gender-affirming psychotherapy and counselling from a person-centred point of view. Jef will discuss the growing visibility, terminology, and perceptions of trans identities and trans experiences. He will invite participants to consider the role of one’s own identity in relation to the topic, his research on attitudes towards trans people, and the growing literature within the person-centred approach on working with people who identify as trans. Finally, he will present a person-centred perspective on how to work with trans people and trans experiences and encourage participants to continue to learn and engage further on the topics discussed for the benefit of practitioners, clients, and society as a whole. 

Jef Cornelius-White is Distinguished Professor of Counseling in the School of Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences at Missouri State University. For 30 years he has been learning, working, and teaching person-centred approaches. Jef has over 150 publications in a variety of fields, especially related to person-centred, experiential, and multicultural counselling and education. He is co-editor of Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies, associate editor of the Journal of Humanistic Counseling, former editor of The Person-Centered Journal, and has held an additional editorial reviewer role at over 50 journals or book publishers. He is former Chair of the Board of the World Association for Person-Centered and Experiential and has taught and presented in several different countries.
