NOON HOUR WEBINAR: Best Practices for Working with Transgender, Nonbinary and Gender Diverse Individuals
Presented by Megan Gour, MSW, APSW, (They, Them)
Currently, our society is targeting transgender, non-binary and gender diverse individuals with laws and legislation that is harmful. As social workers, it is imperative that we learn as much as we can about these individuals and advocate for them to the best of our ability. This training will help social workers have a basic understanding of transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse individuals, best practice for working with these individuals, and we will discuss common myths that are being spread in our society currently. This training will also give a basic understanding of ways that social workers can advocate for these individuals on a micro and macro level. It is important for social workers to understand that no matter the type of social work they practice, they are likely to encounter a transgender person, non-binary, or gender diverse individual and it is crucial with the current climate of our society that social workers are well equipped to support this amazing, resilient, and beautiful group of people.
