Beyond Gatekeeping: Increasing Access to Gender-Affirming Healthcare (Live Training - Virtual)
Date: June 1, 2022 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am EST Presenter: Madeline Hodgman-Korth, MSSA, LISW
In this 2-hour training, we will identify the criteria used by medical and mental health professionals to assess for gender-affirming medical interventions. We will provide an overview of the interventions included in the category of gender-affirming healthcare and their impact on clients’ physical and mental health. Lastly, we will discuss ethical considerations regarding access to gender-affirming healthcare.
Cleveland Sex & Intimacy Counseling began in 2020 out of years of training and interest in sexuality, relationships, intimacy, and identities. We pride ourselves in addressing these areas through a sex-positive and intersectional approach. We recognize that all relationships affect people and all types of intimacy (including intimacy with yourself) are important to cultivate. We provide individual, partner, and family sessions. We also offer intensive 4-hour sessions for couples tight on time or needing to tackle larger relational issues.
We are LGBTQ+ affirming and kink & poly informed.
We believe in social justice and fighting for equity.
