Introduction to Working with Transgender and Non-Binary Adults
June 17, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This training will provide a core foundation for working with transgender and non-binary adults. We will review basic terminology and concepts that any professional — from reception to clinical and medical staff, to administration and human resources —- will need. We will also provide an overview of the historical contexts of gender-affirming care nationally and locally. By the end of this training, participants will be able to interact with transgender and non-binary adults, with more competence and confidence.
- Explain the differences between gender identity, gender presentation, sex, and sexual orientation.
- Understand the importance of gender pronouns and how to properly use them.
- Describe the national and local contexts of gender-affirming care.
