Join Behc Jax-Lynx and Kaeden Seburn as they present two separate workshops based on their most recent writings and research. Behc Jax- Lynx presents: Female to Myself. Personal Reflections of Being Transgender within the Social Services In Female to Myself.  Behc Jax-Lynx shares their vulnerable and authentic personal story of exploring and navigating their gender identity and gender expression while working within social service organizations over the past 15 years. Behc discusses the complexities, heartbreaks and resiliency of being the ‘transgender patient’ while simultaneously being  the ‘transgender professional’ throughout a time of great learning and growing. Behc reflects on their life and weaves the past into the present moment when speaking about gendered stereotypes and spaces, homelessness, addictions, mental health, education, and ending with visions towards a more sustainable and healthy future.  Kaeden Seburn presents: Stop Assessing Us: A Practical Guide to Gender Affirming Care Supporting Trans, Nonbinary and Gender Diverse Youth Kaeden Seburn (they/he pronouns) is a social work student at Carleton University and trans and nonbinary community organizer, activist and educator.

Join them as they unpack the current common practices of care for trans, nonbinary and gender diverse youth and their links to the historical and current medicalization of trans communities. Drawing on the global movement to depathologize trans identities, Kaeden will present a youth-informed approach to practice and facilitate a practical discussion about how we can move away from the assessment process and towards a truly gender affirming model of care.
