Session 2: Gender Identity and the Participant of Transgender Experience in Treatment Court
Transgender adults have a prevalence of SUDs almost four times that of cisgender adults. They face challenges that include dealing with extremely high rates of personal childhood trauma and high ACEs scores, widespread discrimination, violence, practitioner lack of cultural competency, stigma due to their gender identity and expression, and multiple minority stressors. Are persons of transgender experience in our treatment courts, and if they are, are they graduating at equivalent rates as cisgender adults? The fact that we can’t answer this question speaks to the invisibility of exclusion and stigmatization. This module will address cultural competency by developing health literacy skills specific to data collection, gender-affirming and inclusive communication, and self-assessment for bias and micro-aggressions.

By the end of the training session, team members will be able to:
1. Define the terms transgender and cisgender.
2. Explain the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity.
3. Identify the challenges persons of transgender experience have in accessing and succeeding in treatment court.
4. Recognize the impact of trauma on persons of transgender experience.
5. Demonstrate the ability to use an evidence-based, two-question intake tool to determine gender identity.

This webinar is approximately 75 minutes.
