This training will explore the breadth of identities associated with trans and gender nonconforming communities, and how to utilize culturally competent language and behavior for working with this population. Participants will increase their knowledge of substance abuse risk and protective factors, social determinants of health, health care access, and legal and policy issues that impact trans communities. Participants will work together to develop concrete strategies to scenarios that they might encounter in their work, and explore trans-affirming systems and practices for effective service provision. Interactive, solutions-oriented, and engaging, this workshop will provide opportunities for learning and problem solving at all knowledge levels.
