Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The purpose of this study was to explore the effectiveness of OT master’s programs in producing well-rounded therapists who will treat transgender individuals with respect and clinical competence. We compared the perceptions of program directors regarding the effectiveness of their curricula to prepare their students to effectively treat transgender individuals with the perceptions of individuals within the community regarding their own experiences with healthcare providers.
