How counselors can help clients explore gender socialization

Gender refers to the complex and multifaceted concept that encompasses the roles and cultural meanings associated with being male, female, a combination of both, or other. It is distinct from biological sex and can be fluid and self-defined. Understanding and respecting an individual's self-identified gender is essential in counseling, as it plays a significant role in their self-concept and overall well-being.
