Webinar: Transgender Health and HIV/AIDS
March 30, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
On Wednesday March 30, from 1:00-2:30 PM EDT, the American Psychological Association’s Office on AIDS and SAMHSA’s HIV/AIDS and Mental Health Training Resource Center are hosting a webinar titled “Transgender Health and HIV/AIDS.” This webinar will review the most recent literature documenting the disparities that exist for transgender individuals, including mental health and HIV treatment, and their connection to experiences of transphobia—the discrimination, harassment, and violence often directed toward transgender people. Frameworks for thinking about and addressing these disparities in health care provision for transgender people will be discussed, including syndemic theory and the Model of Gender Affirmation. Examples and ideas will foster gender-affirming and trauma-informed healthcare environments and relationships with transgender clients. Click here to register.
