Our CEU on Friday, February 26th will feature special guest therapist, Mary Mattis, LCSW, LCDC of Soco Counseling and co-facilitator, Claire Bow. Claire Bow is a transgender attorney living in Austin, Texas. Ms. Bow earned her J.D. from the Texas Tech School of Law in 1983, and was private practice for 4 years in Lubbock, Tx. She served as an Assistant Attorney General in Texas for 11 years as a litigator and an Administrative Law Judge. In 1998 she became the General Counsel for the State Office of Risk Management and was appointed the Executive Director of that agency in 2004. In that position she directed several large state insurance programs including the Texas self-insured workers' compensation fund and she was responsible for promoting the safety of state workers. She served as President of the State Risk and Insurance Management Association (a national organization of State Risk Managers) from 2012-13. Ms. Bow has extensive legislative experience including drafting legislation, and testifying before legislative committees. In 2014 Ms. Bow retired after a 26-year career in public service to devote herself full time to advocacy for Transgender Rights. Ms. Bow serves on the Transgender Advisory Board to the Center of Excellence in Transgender Health Care located at the University of California, San Francisco and was elected to the Council of the LGBT Section of the State Bar of Texas. She has volunteered with State and National Lobbying efforts to promote Trans Equality and she actively volunteers with a number of local transgender groups in Austin educate the public and promote unity and engagement in the transgender community. This will certainly be a treat for clinicians in the area!
