This 75-min live webinar will discuss mental health care for queer and transgender communities.


This webinar provides a community-defined and evidence-based foundation for mental health providers serving queer and transgender communities. Drawing from historical and current perspectives, this webinar introduces a comprehensive approach to queer and transgender care inclusive of micro, mezzo, and macro-level interventions from the role of the clinician. Centering anti-racism, community lived experience, and an interdisciplinary framework, this webinar explores strengths, weaknesses, and best practices of mental health care for queer and transgender communities.

Learning Objectives:

1. Develop historical context and evolution of transgender care, diagnoses, and pathologization

2. Identify strategies for establishing trust, rapport, and mitigating medical mistrust

3. Address the role of mental health clinicians as allies and co-conspirators in advocating for equity

4. Develop awareness and knowledge of diversity of transgender experiences and identities
