Trans 101: Creating a Safe and Affirming Environment for Transgender Consumers
This training focuses on how to affirm, support and work with mental health consumers who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming, and highlights mental health concerns that disproportionately impact this community due to stigma and marginalization. Participants in this training will come away with a greater sense of comfort and confidence about interacting with transgender and gender nonconforming people in a respectful and affirming manner. Participants will gain familiarity with concepts and vocabulary related to trans identities and experiences, and will also learn specific questions that are appropriate and helpful to ask during the intake process. Participants will also obtain a clear understanding of legal protections for transgender people, as well as the birth certificate gender marker update process as it currently functions both in New York City and statewide.

This 1.5 hour interactive virtual training is designed for social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, case managers, CASACs, mental health counselors, outreach and intake workers, peer specialists, and other health and human services providers.
