Live interactive webinar: Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussion by unmuting and directly asking questions or through the chat feature in Zoom.
This training will focus specifically on how to work with a variety of families who have a child or adolescent who is transgender. Providers, as well as involved family members, are often unfamiliar with the complex developmental, health, mental health, transition needs for trans youth, as well as challenges faced in various life areas such as school, work, and social activities. When working with trans children, therapists often find themselves navigating two parallel processes: the identity development and marginalizing experiences for the trans child AND building acceptance and affirmative practices within their parents, which is related to significantly reduced suicide risks in trans youth. However, parents may carry generational trauma, internalized colonized gender beliefs, and fear that may impact both their child’s mental health, as well as their relationship with their children. Working with families of trans youth is a challenge that is distinctly more complex than cisgender families.
You will leave this training with a greater understanding and comfort level in working with the families of gender expansive and transgender youth. Key content will focus on:
Target Audience: Social workers, mental health counselors, case managers, marriage and family therapists, creative arts therapists, addictions professionals, psychologists, and other interested parties.Customer Service
