The WPATH Standards of Care

The WPATH Standards of Care represent the recognized consensus of expert health professionals that provides evidence based clinical guidelines for eligibility and readiness criteria and a client-centered professional team model for safe delivery of gender related health services. The gender therapist is a mental health professional (social worker, counselor, MFT, sexologist, psychologist, or psychiatrist) who is knowledgeable in diagnosis and care of gender issues. The therapist provides the referral to the medical doctor for prescription and supervision of medical treatments. For surgical treatments the standards recommend referral by two mental health professionals, one of whom has a doctoral degree (PhD or MD). Care should be individualized and adapted to the needs and circumstances of each individual.
