Services Outside the Box: Helping Your Clients Navigate Sex-Segregated Services
In an ideal world, every client would have access to ANY medical and mental health service they need.  Unfortunately, many services are sex-segregated, which creates additional barriers to clients (and providers).  This didactic and interactive workshop will examine how to creatively advocate for and with your clients around services such as sexual assault / domestic violence support groups and housing, OB/GYN/urology appointments, forms and policy management, referrals and networking. Providers will leave new solutions to old problems — benefitting their clients and their field.

“When I’m Sixty Four”  Transgender Aging and Sexuality
In our culture, most people don’t think about sexuality when they think about aging.  This workshop will review transgender aging sexuality data from two national surveys and discuss the implications of how aging intersects with sex, body image, physical bodily changes, trauma histories, dating, libido, long-term relationships, health, disclosure, sexual orientation shifts, cultural expectations, and more.  Interactive exercises throughout the workshop will encourage participants to examine their own thoughts and feelings about trans-aging and sexuality, as well as deepen their knowledge of the subject.
