This course uses materials I have produced based on the WPATH Standards of Care and the APA Guidelines on Working with Transgender and Gender Non–Conforming Clients. It is primarily all reading materials.
Some course content is used also in the LGBT ethics course and the Introduction to Working with TGNC clients course.
I include additional recommended reading/viewing that I encourage you to read/view. Many of the lessons also include a reflective question which I encourage you to spend some time with.
