Transgender and nonforming (TGNC) people are those who have a gender identity that is not fully aligned with their sex assigned at birth. They often face widespread discrimination and mistreatment within the healthcare system because providers may lack adequate training. Much of the existing information regarding TGNC has been extrapolated from studies of people who are lesbians, gay and bisexuals (LGB).
This three-part series can help social workers become more culturally and clinically proficient in their work with TGNC individuals across their lifespan.
Cost per session: $80; ($70 for current Field Instructors, Alumni of SSW or SBU employees)
