This training will explore the breadth of identities associated with transgender and gender nonconforming communities, including the intersecting experiences of race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic circumstances and disability. Participants will learn to utilize culturally competent language and behavior for addressing and working with this population and increase their knowledge of health care access, legal and policy issues that impact transgender communities. The training will highlight best practices for providing equal access for transgender and gender nonconforming populations in community health, social service and juvenile detention settings. Participants will work together to develop concrete strategies to specific scenarios that they might encounter in their work and explore trans-affirming systems and procedures for effective service provision. Interactive, solutions-oriented and engaging, this workshop will provide opportunities for learning and problem solving at all knowledge levels.
