Transgender and Gender Nonbinary Youth: Clinical Tools for Working with Youth Across the Gender Spectrum
Part of our Friday Morning Tea & Training Webinar Series!
This generation of youth are profoundly expanding our understanding of the possibilities available for gender identity and expression. Many clinicians who work with youth, despite their specializations, may find themselves working with a young client who holds a transgender or gender nonbinary (TGNB) identity and/or expression.
Through participation in this training, you will gain a deeper conceptual understanding of TGNB youth and learn the up-to-date research and key tools for supporting them on their gender journey. The training will also focus on the unique effects of racial intersectionality among TGNB youth, as well as the specific needs of these youth during our current pandemic.
A portion of the proceeds from this training will be donated to support the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund and The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund. The Loveland Therapy Fund provides financial assistance to Black women and girls across the nation seeking therapy. The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund is an emergency mutual aid fund that raises money to pay for one-time mental health therapy sessions with licensed Black women therapists, for Black trans women.
For mental health professionals, medical team members, educators, and youth program leaders. This course includes 2 hours of APA continuing education credits.
