UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

 Culturally Humble, Trans-Affirming Clinical Care

Presented by Dietz and Tucker Rose Barker, NBC-HWC

  

Friday, April 23, 2021

9:00 AM – 12:15 PM CST via Zoom

This presentation will review best practices and considerations for working with trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients in a behavioral health setting. Participants will gain a working understanding of pronouns, gender identity, and expression, and learn how to support patients who are considering initiating or who are actively pursuing medical transition. Presenters will review WPATH guidelines for drafting behavioral health clearance letters for gender-affirming surgeries.

Workshop participants will be guided in assessing policies and protections for TGNC clients in the clinical setting and learn when to branch out for external community support/referrals. Facilitators will offer an overview of national and regional policies affecting clients of trans experience and explore the complex history of pathologizing TGNC communities within behavioral health systems.

The event Zoom link will be distributed 48 hours before the event begins. This workshop is approved for 3 clinical hours for Social Workers by the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners and is pending approval for 3 general requirement clock hours for LPCs and PLPCs by the Louisiana Counseling Association. Please see the Eventbrite link for the full agenda, learning objectives, and speaker bios.
