Professionals’ Night – Supporting Trans & Gender Diverse Youth

May 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

At the ARTS COMMONS, Arts Learning Centre, located in Centre Court right off Olympic Plaza.

Professionals involved in direct service delivery for youth (e.g., psychologists, social workers, educators, administrators, family physicians and other medical practitioners) are increasingly likely to encounter gender diversity in the clients and patients they serve.

Yet many professionals report feeling under-equipped to provide competent care and support for transgender and gender diverse youth.

Join us for an evening with child psychologist Ashleigh Yule, who will explore evidence-based practical strategies to create safer and more inclusive professional services for trans and gender diverse youth.
