Service Provider Training
The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) offers training for various service providers in New York State. We offer cultural sensitivity & competency training to public accommodations that serve the Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, & Non-Binary (TGNCNB) communities.
This 4-module training is aimed at all public accommodations in order to ensure they provide effective and respectful services to members of the TGNCNB community. Each module is designed to tackle issues such as bias within practice, the unique challenges TGNCNB people face when accessing services, and what you can do to ensure the needs of your TGNCNB clients are met with respect and understanding.
- Articulate the different types of bias and describe how they facilitate the perpetuation of various disparities amongst TGNCNB communities
- Reflect on your own biases and how they might impact your relationships with TGNCNB clients and/or traumatize your TGNCNB-identified clients
- Apply effective strategies to better support the needs of the TGNCNB community and promote their access to optimal and equitable services
- Integrate trauma-informed approaches that affirm members of the TGNCNB community and contribute to their healing and overall wellness
