Part 1: Trans 101
This session focuses on the basics of trans related mental health services. Become aware of important terms, the World Professional Association for Trans Health (WPATH) Standards of Care, and the many forms of transition. Stel will discuss how to navigate your role as a mental health provider without reinforcing gatekeeper mentality.
Part 2: Minority Stress and Mental Health
There’s a lot more than just transition to consider. Using a strengths-based lens, Stel explains what minority stress is, the influence it has on trans lives, and why it’s essential mental health providers continue to develop their awareness on these issues. This session will help you go beyond the surface of transition related services by addressing the intersectionality of mental health and gender identity.
Part 3: Q & A
Throughout the month you will be able to email questions that remain unanswered directly to Stel. They will then develop a webinar tailored specifically to answer these questions.
