This talk is from the 2022 Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health Care Conference.
Learning Resources — Transgender Health
Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) children, adolescents, and their families are increasingly seeking out pediatricians and mental health providers for education, treatment, and services related to gender-affirming care. TGD children, adolescents, and their families are looking for care that is welcoming, affirming, and safe. However, due to a lack of training and information about providing gender-affirming care, providers may feel unprepared to offer this level of care to children and adolescents in TGD communities. This toolkit is a curated list of resources created by the National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center to aid medical and behavioral health providers who are either starting on their journey in gender-affirming care for TGD youth or are looking to refresh or further their learning and understanding of creating safe, supportive, affirming health care experiences for TGD children and adolescents.
This panel-style presentation will feature experts from community-led organizations whose work highlights the importance of assessing and supporting the resiliency of TGD youth to improve health outcomes. Participants of this webinar will discover strategies for developing meaningful and sustainable relationships to community partners that provide resiliency building opportunities for youth.
