Learning Objectives

  1. Define concepts of gender dysphoria, fluidity and non binary;
  2. Identify treatment available for transgender individuals in Alberta;
  3. Describe effective evidence informed treatment intervention.


Transgender healthcare is a prominent issue in society and in the media. Society is much more open and tolerant to gender diversity and so many more individuals are seeking medical help regarding hormone and surgical treatments. With higher rates of mental health disorders and better access to services psychiatrist will be seeing more and more trans people in their practices. The purpose of my talk is to introduce my colleagues to the concept of gender incongruence, to provide assessment tips and inform about treatments available.
