Event Description
Speaker: Sarah Painer World MS, MSW, LISW-S Transgender and gender nonconforming youth are a population with increased risk of mental health, safety 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 well-being and safety of this population. Objectives: 1. This training will explore gender variance, including definitions and learning the ‘lingo.’ 2. It will help to prepare clinicians to implement trans competent practice, improve communication and recognize the role of ethics in interacting with patients and families. 3. During this training we will discuss creating a safe environment, including how to create a safe space for patients and families. 4. You will learn how to identify risk factors for youth associated with being transgender, including DSM-5 criteria and risk factors. 5. We seek to help clinicians comprehend the importance of family acceptance and their role in working with youth and their families. 6. We will review services provided in transgender clinic, including treatment options, gender affirming care and steps towards transition.
