TGD people’s bodies, health and experiences are often subject to pathologisation by being framed as abnormal, disordered or subject to medicalisation. The ZBGC has developed this depathologisation training to provide mental health, health clinicians and support workers with pathways and practices that ensure that TGD health is self-determined and holistic.

Topics include:

  • TGD identities, language and experiences
  • Respectful communication and pronouns
  • Gender affirmation (transitioning) & other protective factors
  • Experiences of pathologisation when accessing medical affirmation
  • Supporting TGD people through experiences of pathologisation
  • Gender euphoria vs. gender dysphoria
  • Informed consent pathways
  • Trans and gender diverse affirmative practice
