    Affirming Clinical Practices and Procedures

    This training session is designed to help attendees to have the knowledge and build the skills necessary to offer services that are more affirming for transgender and non-binary clients, especially in regards to writing letters of support. To ensure that participants have accurate, up-to-date, and affirming information about transgender and non-binary people, TTI will provide a 3-hour training that begins with a refresher on the basics of transgender and non-binary identities, including commonly used language and terminology, and the unique experiences transgender and non-binary people have in healthcare settings. After the foundational refresher and discussion around the varied medical and surgical transitions transgender and non-binary people may choose to undergo, the remainder of the session will be focused on supporting clients through those transitions and creating an empowered and client-centered approach to writing clinician letters.

    We recognize and appreciate that attendees will have a wide range of knowledge, attitudes, and skills related to transgender and non-binary topics. We also honor that there might be participants who identify as transgender and non-binary or have loved ones who are transgender and non-binary. When working in groups with mixed levels of knowledge and across identities, one of our primary goals is to help ensure that participants with more to learn are at the center of training efforts. This provides an opportunity for these participants to join in the shared understanding of language, knowledge of transgender and non-binary people’s lived experiences, and understanding of areas where critical support is needed. We strive to create learning environments where peer-to-peer learning provides opportunities for participants with more expertise to share their knowledge. In our experience, this intentional building of shared understanding across information gaps often helps support the successful implementation of trans-related work moving forward. This training is designed for participants to have a shared understanding around the basics of transgender and non- binary identities and experiences, and how to be an affirming and supportive provider for whatever steps their clients are considering or intending to take.

    These training sessions will be specifically written for this event and designed for virtual implementation on Zoom. Because we do incorporate interactive elements into our trainings, we recommend participants use headphones with a microphone, a keyboard, and a webcam but it is not required.

    Goals:

    The overall goals of this training are for participants to:

    1. Provide a foundational understanding of the unique clinical needs of transgender and non-binary clients.

    2. Increase clinician's comfort with and ability too provide affirming support for transgender and non-binary clients.

    Learning Objectives:

    As a result of this training, participants will be able to:

    ●  Name three common challenges transgender and non-binary people experience in the healthcare system.

    ●  Identify two clinical and administrative strategies that mental health professionals can implement to better support transgender and non-binary clients.

    ●  Write a client-centered and affirming letter of support for different medical and surgical transitions clients are seeking.
