This three-part webinar series aims at exploring the experience of trans youth and their families, as well a how social work can respond to some of their needs. This session, Part 1, will explore some of the basic concepts and latest research evidence in order to better understand trans youth's experience. 


Part 2 will discuss of the experiences of families who care for trans children and youth.  Finally, part 3 will discuss how social work, by its values and missions, can intervene and facilitate social change to improve the lives of trans children, youth and families.
