Transgender and Non-Binary Youth: Advanced Practice Gender-Affirming Interventions to Help Clients Live an Authentic Life – Live Webinar
March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
Our transgender and non-binary youth are being hurt by overt discrimination, microaggressions, and health disparities. It’s a heartbreaking reality—society attacks them for just trying to be themselves.
If you’re not already seeing trans and non-binary young clients facing mental health issues, you will. Statistics show this is a growing population, with increasing cases of trauma, shame, fear, depression, and suicidal ideation. Your ability to provide gender-affirming mental health care could be lifesaving.
It’s critical that you’re prepared. An LGBTQ-friendly practice is not the same as one that is LGBTQ-informed. It’s time to become an ally.
This one-day training is your chance to de-pathologize treatment and reduce the vulnerabilities that can lead to significant negative outcomes for kids and teens. Susan Radzilowski, MSW, LMSW, ACSW, is a therapist, advocate, and ally whose decades of experience as a practicing clinician, along with her personal experience as a mother of a transgender child, make her uniquely qualified to teach you about working with trans and non-binary young clients.
From learning safe language, knowing the fine-points of assessment, gaining knowledge about hormones, navigating transitions, managing stigma, and beyond – Susan will cover all the bases so you not only understand these young people, but can truly advocate for them!
