Trans* Behavioral Health Care Training

 

REGISTRATION FOR 2014 BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROVIDERS' TRAINING IS OPEN

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 TBHC:

The aim of the Trans Behavioral Health Care training 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.

Continuing Education Credits will be offered for TBHI by the NASW-PA


Cost 

The cost of the course is based on continuing education credit pricing for the credits that will be offered for the entire 2 day training. The type of credits needed will be dependent on the level of education (PhD/MD, MS, BA/BS, or other) required by your certification body.  Please check with your certifying organization about if they will accept Continuing Education Units from the National Association of Social Work in which case you can register for the Master/Bachelors/Other Level Certification/Licensure Credits. If they do not accept those credits and require credits from a higher level certifying body please register for the Doctoral Level Credits as we will be offering credits appropriate for that level (more details coming soon).  If you are an NASW member your credits are discounted.
