Living Out Loud: How to Serve Transgender Clients Where They Are
Monday, June 25, 2018
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Transgender men and women face significant barriers to their utilization of health and human services, including lack of provider knowledge, non-inclusive service design and delivery, intolerance, and lack of institutional response. Living Out Loud is designed to raise levels of practical knowledge among health and human services providers about the identities, needs, and concerns of transgender clients, and to transmit best practices for professional interactions and communications. The program uses multiple learning modalities (video, interactive small and large group activities, and structured dialogue), to engage participants in an upbeat, positive atmosphere and encourage immediate application of the new skills they gain.
CEUs: 6.0 CEUs provided ***FREE***

Those of you who are interested in community based research will be happy to know that we've uploaded some presentations from three of the studies the TRT has been involved in: County Me In, Maryland - a statewide census of transgender people; Be The Conversation - a community needs assessment for transgender and gender nonconforming people in the Baltimore Metro area, and; the STROBE study - an assessment of HIV burden among transgender women of color in Baltimore and Washington, DC.
Find these on the Research Page.
Well, it's been a long time coming, but the new website is finally up! Woohoo!
