Additionally, we provide up-to-date and scientifically-based developments within the discipline of psychology and relevant fields for professional psychologists and psychology trainees.

Examples of program content include:

Gender development during childhood and adolescents
Informed consent models for transgender healthcare
Navigating gender transition within schools
Gender transition across the lifespan
Hormone replacement therapy
Trans-collaborative healthcare
Sexual identity development

2) Provide opportunities for clinicians to acquire new knowledge and engage with current competencies and standards related to issues of multicultural diversity and specifically gender diversity.
