Trans 101: An Introduction to Transgender Affirming Care

From 9 AM EST until 12 PM EST

At Live webinar via Zoom

$ 65

More than ever, people identifying as transgender or gender questioning are in need of compassionate, competent clinical care from mental health professionals.  Unfortunately, so many of us didn’t get a foundational knowledge of gender diversity in our grad school programs, and it’s not always easy to find trainings available on this topic. This results in a lot of unmet need within the trans community.

In this engaging, interactive, live webinar, you will be given a foundational knowledge of the diverse array of gender identities, gender expressions, and transition options for clients of all ages.  I’ve created this training with actionable information that’s applicable to work with clients across the life span; you’ll leave with knowledge that you can start putting to use right after this training’s over.

This isn’t a typical webinar where you’ll be talked at, disengaged and bored to tears. I design my webinars to be FUN and worthwhile, because I’m passionate about creating great training experiences to help my colleagues be able to provide affirming, inclusive, trans-competent clinical spaces.

Registration includes access to the live webinar, as well as supplemental learning materials to help you continue in this important work after this training.  And finally, your registration helps the LGBTQ community; $5 of every registration will be donated to The Trevor Project, a national non-profit dedicated to suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth.

There are 9 people coming.

  • An overview of how we as providers can provide thorough mental health assessments of clients seeking gender-affirming surgeries, to provide letters of support without gatekeeping
