Transgender Care: Identity- and Trauma-Informed Care
Friday, Sept 18th: 9am-3:30pm
Monday, Sept 21st: 9am-3:30pm
TARGET AUDIENCE: Transgender, cisgender, and non-binary providers will gain useful tools and interventions from this training. Licensed and unlicensed LPC, LCSW, LMFT, PsyD providers; DHS caseworkers, peer mentors, foster parents, advocates, and other helping professionals
How do people deal with oppression on a daily basis? As a care provider, how do I help people build skills for it? How do I navigate my own relationship with oppression while trying to help another human?
This training draws from the skills-based model of Dr. Leticia Nieto, PsyD, to help providers make sense of how humans navigate oppression-related trauma, and build interventions to increase resiliency. The training will use Nietos trans-theoretical identity model to contextualize common trauma treatment modalities so that providers can identify when, where, and how to implement such interventions, based on a clients given presentation. The training will help providers understand specific processes experienced by many transgender and non-binary people, and support them from trauma- and equity-based models of care.
For a primer on the model, visit http://www.seattlechannel.org/embedvideoplayer?videoid=x59621
Understand common trauma treatment interventions within a trans-theoretical identity model to apply interventions more strategically and effectively
Identify skill sets used by clients and providers to navigate oppression and privilege
Identify interventions that help build new skillsets in client and provider

During this training, participants will engage in didactic presentation, self-reflection, videos of community members experiences, and experiential activities. Those who complete all parts of the training will be added to a vetted list of providers shared by Brave Space and community medical providers.
Participants will gain access to a variety of Brave Spaces internal client resources and the Powerpoint slides at the end of the training.
