Join us for the third workshop series in the Conscientious Clinician Program (CCP)- Using Trauma- Informed Approaches in Care Settings & Addressing the Needs of the LGBTQ and Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) Communities by Julian L. Watkins.

Trauma-informed approaches, MD center the client or patient and shift the focus from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?” This allows for providers to develop a more comprehensive view about who the patient is and events that have impacted their health outcomes, which facilitates the provider’s ability to provide more effective services. Trauma-informed approaches also have the potential to improve patient engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness. In this session, participants will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in patients; examine the impact of trauma on patients, their families, staff, and the communities they are part of; integrate knowledge about trauma-informed approaches into their work; and identify strategies for actively avoiding re-traumatization.

The needs of the LGBTQ and TGNC communities can vary greatly from their cisgender counterparts, as well as from each other. Generally, LGBTQ and TGNC individuals experience higher rates of mental health issues, intimate partner violence (IPV), and sexually transmitted diseases, to name a few, and face multiple and compounded forms of oppression. In this session, participants will unpack the social ills that contribute to the disparate experiences of members of these communities and learn strategies to provide quality, affirming, person-centered care that holistically addresses the health needs of LGBTQ and TGNC persons.
