An exploration of how to provide TGNC-competent psychological care, with guidance about specific practices

Presentation-style

  • Course Description

    As mental health moves toward an affirming Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) care model, providers may struggle with knowing how to competently support the clients at different stages of care, from which name to use in the chart to how to create a treatment team that is competent and affirming. Historically, TGNC folks are often misgendered and misunderstood in psychiatric and psychological practice. This course provides details on how to provide affirming and evidence-based psychiatric care to TGNC adolescents and young adults.

  • Learning Objectives

    Upon completing this course, participants will be able to: List four or more TGNC affirming psychiatric practices; Analyze ways in which their own practice/agency can be more TGNC affirming; Describe the history of TGNC mental health treatment
