In recent years there has been a global trend towards an alternative model of care for gender variance/gender dysphoria (GV/GD) that expedites access to medical treatments without a significant mental health component. At the same time, there are clients who may still benefit from MH care and many physicians and insurance companies still require letters of referral from MHP’s for medical care. Yet few MHP’s have training and experience in this area. The purpose of this introductory training is to raise awareness of the complexity of the challenges confronting MHP’s when presented with a case involving GV/GD. Following this conference, the option for additional small group training will be available for participants who are interested in providing care for this population.
