Webinar: Mental Health Care and Assessment of Transgender Adults
Sponsored by: The National LGBT Health Education Center
Research suggests that the number of transgender people seeking gender affirming surgical procedures is accelerating in the US with the lifting of insurance exclusions. Behavioral health providers are seeing more transgender patients seeking referrals to surgeons. Dr. Dan Karasic of the University of California San Francisco will describe the role of the behavioral health care provider in assessing and advising patients during transition and discuss how to apply WPATH Standards of Care in practice using case-based examples and anecdotes from his work at UCSF Alliance Health Project and the Transgender Life Care Program and Dimensions Clinic of Castro Mission Health Clinic in San Francisco.
