Trans* Behavioral Health Care Training
Registration for TBHI is closed.
13th Annual Philadelphia Trans Health Conference
June 12-14, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City Philadelphia
This training is for behavioral health/mental health professionals and students of behavioral health/mental health professions.
Summary of TBHI:
The aim of the Trans Behavioral Health Care Initiative course within the Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference is to provide instruction and training opportunities to therapists, psychologists and social workers who offer services to trans-identified clients or have interest in learning more about how to provide trans affirming care. This series of workshops will outline evidence based research, clinical methodology and best practices for clinicians and will be presented by leaders in the field of mental health and transgender services.
Lecturers will present on current topics and modalities relevant to the intersection of behavioral health and gender, while including a contextual backdrop drawn from pertinent policy and legal considerations. Workshops will also highlight existing community-based resources and link participants to additional client supports and examine gaps in services for trans identified patients.
