Professional Development

TransActive professional development training assists those in education, healthcare, social services and other disciplines in their goal of establishing safe, supportive and empowering environments in which gender expansive children, youth and their peers can thrive.

We deliver solution-centered, evidence-based programming and instruction designed to help you meet the evolving demands of your interactions with coworkers, community, and those you serve. We offer trainings both in-person and virtually.

TransActive training addresses existing myths and misinformation about gender expansive self-expression in children and youth, while examining the social, cultural, health and legal challenges that face those who are transgender, gender expansive, queer and non-binary. Workshops are engaging, inclusive, challenging, and tailored to your needs.
