Gender Affirmation Counts: Evidence-Based Practices for Physical and Mental Health, SafeGuards

Peterborough, Ontario
October 11, 2017

This session will provide opportunities to practice front line and supervisory skills needed to create gender affirming spaces, services and workplaces. It will also be a safe space to review your professional practice and ensure that you are delivering accurate, health promoting service, fostering a workplace aligned with legislative requirements and offering resources and opportunities to children, youth and families that align with current and credible research in gender affirmation.

Key outcomes:

  • Practice skills to counteract four levels of transphobia (internal, interpersonal, cultural and institutional)
  • Equip yourself to foster resilience skills like communication, setting boundaries, consent, empowerment and authentic celebration of diversity
  • Align your professional practice and organizational policies and practices with Ontario and Canada's legislative framework, sectoral guidelines and credible research
