A 1-Day Masterclass
Research has shown that individuals who identify as transgender or non-binary face multiple discrimination and minority stress areas, and the athletic world can be worse. We can help decrease the stigma, isolation, and rejection – and the related adverse social, emotional, physical, and financial outcomes transgender and non-binary people experience non-affirmative environments. Our Clinics should be a space of affirmative care for transgender athletes to achieve their performance goals. To truly support transgender and non-binary people in our communities, we must have a strong understanding of what each of these identities means and the unique challenges these individuals face. This master class will provide an advanced understanding of identities, experiences, athlete care, and healthcare management for transgender and non-binary athletes.
