On-Demand & Move-At-Your-Pace!

This course is for anyone who is interested in learning more in-depth information about the reproductive health of Queer & Trans people through the childbearing years, and how to support clients during these experiences. Information on the basics of gender, sexuality, pronouns, or similar topics are not the main focus of classes, and it is be expected that those who are enrolled in this course have already done learning on these topics and/or they are prepared to use the introductory resources to educate themselves in order for the main content to land with them. This continued education course is appropriate for those who already do, or would like to, work with QTLGB clients, and want to expand their knowledge to better support the diverse needs of those clients. All five modules of content center queer and trans experiences, rather than contrasting those experiences against dominant culture narratives.
