Research suggests that the number of transgender people seeking gender affirming surgical procedures is increasing, and this is accelerating in the US with the lifting of insurance exclusions. Behavioral health providers are seeing more transgender patients seeking referrals to surgeons, and are seeking guidance on the standard practice with each patient. Dr. Dan Karasic of the University of California San Francisco will lead this webinar, describing the role of the behavioral health care provider during a person’s transition and how to assess and advise patients. Dr. Karasic will detail the WPATH Standards of Care and describe how to apply these standards 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.
