Join the United Neighbors Community Partnership as we discuss ways we can improve cultural competency while working with transgender youth and their families. Throughout the conversation, we will discuss the following topics:

  • Gender on a continuum
  • Gender options
  • Sexist stereotypes
  • Sexist internalization
  • Prejudice and discrimination
  • Gender binary and cultural norms
  • Transphobia
  • Micro and macro aggressions
  • Transition challenges
  • Evolution of diagnosis in the DSM
  • Transgender youth and family needs and treatment

2 CEU credits will be available to participants, as well as a resource list of transgender friendly services. Contact Wendy Garf-Lipp at 508-324-7900 ext. 103 or via email at wendy@unfr.org for more information.
