Affirming Care for Transgender and Gender Expansive Youth

NCTSN Resource

Resource Description

Provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the needs and challenges transgender and gender-expansive youth face. This webinar covers basic definitions surrounding gender, gender identity, and gender expression, while creating a learning environment for participants to examine their own perceptions of gender and reflect on the capacity of their role as a professional. Participants learn about developmental considerations, components of a social transition, and aspects of a medical transition. Presenters examine the impact of trauma transgender and gender-expansive youth may experience and how providers can build an affirming practice and environment for the youth and families that they serve.
