About the event
Emily Trittschuh, PhD and Jae Purnell, PhD will present on how one can develop an affirmative neuropsychological practice with the goal to increase comfort with querying gender and selecting neuropsychological measures.

As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Describe how to practice culturally safe and humble neuropsychology with transgender and gender diverse (TGD) adults;
2. Discuss important psychosocial perspective with include, but are not limited to, minority stress and resilience, as well as models of health disparity;
3. Demonstrate growing edges as a profession and individually.
