Foundational Skills for Trans Inclusion

December 1, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$40 – $50

Live Interactive Webinar | December 1, 2021, noon-2 p.m. ET
Instructor: Davey Shlasko, M.Ed.
CEs: 2 CEs are available for $5 fee
Level: Intermediate

The understanding of gender identity continues to evolve at a fast pace with growing diversity and nuance. In spite of increasing acceptance of transgender identities, trans community members still face intense stigma, violence and barriers to participation. Many service providers have good intentions about trans inclusion; with a deeper understanding and expanded toolbox, they can build on those intentions to create truly trans-inclusive practices. This course explores the impacts of the current binary gender system and its relationship to histories of colonization and examines key terminology and concepts for understanding trans identities, as well as barriers, risks and resilience factors common in trans communities. The course provides examples of trans-inclusive practices, practice applying them and an opportunity to ask questions about real world scenarios. Participants will leave this course with a foundation for integrating trans-inclusive and -affirming practices into your work.

Please note: Back by popular demand! This course was previously run as a webinar called Foundations for Trans Inclusive Practice in 2019 and the recording was available as an online course. If you have already taken it, much of the content will be be similar.
