Transgender and gender nonconforming youth are a population with increased risk of mental health, safe and health concerns. Clinicians are more and more seeing trans and gender nonconforming youth in their practice and need to be competent in providing quality therapeutic care. Trans and gender nonconforming youth experience high rates of rejection from families, decreased access to care, homelessness, discrimination and abuse and health concerns. Clinicians can offer support and resources to help ensure the wellbeing and safety of this population.
This course will employ the use of training videos, lecture, and participant engagement through activity. There will be plenty of time for questions and the trainees are happy to tailor this training as participants see helpful.
This training is most appropriate for licensed therapists seeking to learn the new information on working with transgender and gender nonconforming people.
