Presenter: Linden G. Jordan, President PFLAG Skagit
1.5 CLE credits of Equity-Ethics credit per APR 11(f)(2)
This CLE will be discussing the science of gender. We are taught that it is all so simple, yet nothing could be further from the truth. We will explore the world of in utero development as it applies to the formation of sexual anatomy and our gender identity. You will understand why gender identity is so critical and so interesting. This will help you as you work with clients who are part of the community and who encounter the legal system which often is very challenging for them. This will help you understand the importance of names, pronouns and respect for these individuals.
