Trans 101: An Introduction to Transgender Affirming Care

From 9 AM until 12 PM

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 24 hour free confidential suicide hotline for LGBTQ youth.

There are 17 people coming.

Trans 201: Advanced Practices in Serving the Trans Community

At Online - live webinar via Zoom

$ 150

This training is suitable for mental health professionals who already have some experience in working with transgender, non-binary and gender questioning clients.  This full day training goes more in depth than my Trans 101 training to explore ways in which you can support clients through social, legal, and medical transition.  Specifically, this training will help you learn:

  • Stages of development in gender identity; how to identify what stage clients are at when they come into your practice, and how to best support their needs at that time
  • Detailed information of medical transition options such as cross-hormone treatment and gender affirming surgeries
  • 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
  • Information on navigating legal transition steps (name, gender markers on identification) in CT.
  • A review of DSM 5 diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and its clinical presentations in the context of other co-occurring experiences.

Registration fee includes training materials and access to private zoom link for this training as well as CEC certificate upon completion of training and post-training survey.

This training is pending re-approval for 6 Cultural Competency CEC’s through NASW/CT
