About this Event

In this training, we will address how age and gender identity impact who has control over transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) health care and the barriers associated with accessing affirmative care. We will explore the nuances and wide variety of experiences of being a gender expansive human and will introduce perspectives to enhance your clinical work. While no two TGNC people are alike, Jackie, AJ and Blue will take us through the themes they have experienced in their practices over the last decade. Coming from a deep tradition of person-centered and client driven approaches, we will provide insight and tools to help you support TGNC people as children, adults and older adults.
