From transsexualism to transgenderism… changing health practitioners’ culture

From transsexualism to transgenderism… changing health practitioners’ culture

As an alternative, the Agnodice foundation implements a pioneering model of multidisciplinary participative care for transgender clients. This session will present the work we are currently doing in Switzerland, along with transpeople and practitioners (private and public), building a network and putting ethical concerns into action. Our work is focused on transgender health issues, transparent and participative actions, education of practitioners, medical staff and social workers, an internet platform, a network of mental health and other professionals, supervisions and the development of empowering therapies for transgender clients. We implement a transition from a medical view -transsexualism- to a social and citizencentered view of gender variety -transgenderism.
