Transgender Awareness Training
31st May 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm€50.00
The aim of this workshop is to enable participants develop their foundation knowledge, skills and comfort levels in relation to the area of Transgender. It will enable participants to explore their attitudes, values and comfort levels in relation to Transgender, develop an understanding of the different identities under the Trans umbrella, increase their knowledge of Trans issues in an International and Irish context, explore some of the experiences of transgender adults, adolescents, children and their families and develop knowledge in relation to transgender treatment options.
The learning outcome of this workshop is for the participants to have increased awareness of their comfort level in relation to Transgender issues and how this might impact on their work and have an increased understanding of the issues that affect Trans people and their families and an increased skill level in addressing some of the issues. The participant will be aware of a number of options or pathways that Trans people and their families might follow to reduce anxiety, develop coping skills and function at a higher level in society and understand the need for the development of a healthcare policy for Trans people and their families. Certificate given at the end of the day.
