Supporting Transgender and Gender Expansive Youth

This webinar provides in-depth information on how to welcome, affirm, and best serve transgender and gender-expansive youth in out-of-home care. Topics include the diversity of identities and experiences among these young people, what we know about their mental health experiences, and guidance on how to assess whether a mental health provider can provide affirming services.

Together, we will explore promising practices on creating a gender inclusive environment in child welfare, mental health, and broader child serving systems and tips for ensuring you are an affirming presence in the lives of transgender and gender expansive youth.
