This teleconference will assist social workers in developing skills necessary for working with transgender, transsexual, and other gender non-conforming people and their families. By exploring definitions, learning non-pathologizing approaches to gender diversity, and understanding the differences between sexual orientation and gender identity, social workers will enhance their practice skills and develop tools for social justice and advocacy.
