NEW! WPATH GEI Intersectionality & Diversity Workshop
Live Session: Friday, February 2, 2024: 10:00am – 2:00pm EST

The NEW WPATH GEI Online Intersectionality & Diversity Workshop Breaking Barriers: An International and Intersectional Exploration of Access to Gender-Affirming Care for Transgender Youth and Families is intended for different health and mental health related professionals who work with transgender and gender diverse individuals and their families/loved ones.  We have invited different trainers from different disciplines to present and to share their clinical experiences in working with different transgender and gender diverse minority groups.

Embark on a transformative journey with us at the annual WPATH conference 2024 through our groundbreaking interdisciplinary pre-conference panel presentation, "Breaking Barriers." This session will offer an exploration of the intricate landscape surrounding access to gender-affirming medical and mental health care for transgender and/or gender diverse youth and their families. With a global perspective, this panel will delve into collaborative efforts to overcome challenges and foster inclusivity.

Our panel will comprise experts spanning disciplines including medical, pharmacological, mental health, law, and advocacy, collectively providing unique insights to unravel the multifaceted barriers on a global scale. The session will emphasis intersectionality, delving into layers of identity such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geography, etc., which intricately shape individuals' access to gender-affirming care.

Key Discussion Points:

  • International Perspectives: Gain profound insights into the diverse global landscapes of gender-affirming care, meticulously comparing and contrasting approaches, policies, and cultural nuances that profoundly influence accessibility.
  • Legal and Policy Considerations: Explore the intricate legal and policy frameworks affecting access to care for transgender and gender diverse youth globally. Acknowledge the variations across different regions and nations while also exploring opportunities for providing inter-jurisdictional care.
  • Intersectionality in Care: Discuss the profound impact of intersectionality on shaping experiences. Address disparities and promote inclusive and culturally competent practices that acknowledge the unique complexities of diverse identities.
  • Collaborative Strategies: Discover successful collaborative models that bridge the gap between medical and mental health services, fostering a comprehensive and supportive approach to gender-affirming care that recognizes and respects the diverse needs of individuals.
  • Community Advocacy and Engagement: Hear inspiring stories from an advocate who has successfully navigated barriers and instigated change at the grassroots level. Emphasis the crucial role of community-level efforts in dismantling obstacles and creating a more accessible future for transgender and gender-diverse adolescents and their families.
  • This pre-conference panel warmly invites attendees to participate in a dynamic discussion, encouraging the sharing of insights, strategies, and best practices. Let us collectively break down barriers, paving the way for a more inclusive and accessible future for transgender and gender-diverse youth and their families. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to contribute to a global conversation that advances the field and champions compassionate and affirming care for all.

The workshop will include various topics about working with transgender individuals and their loved ones with different intersectionality and diversity backgrounds and issues.  The main goal is to provide current clinical evidence-based practices and information on ways to work with these minority groups by learning about our own bias, identifying their unique and extra stressors, and developing some clinical skills.
