Living Out Loud: How to Serve Transgender Clients Where They Are
Monday, July 23, 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.
