About the Keynote:
This presentation will begin discussing the basics of gender and transgenderism and move into the importance of understanding issues that transgender youth face for social workers working in schools. The presentation will include information on the recently developed state guidelines for transgender students in schools and what those guidelines mean for school social workers.

Nick Teich, LCSW, PhD candidate in social policy at the Heller School for Social Policy & Management at Brandeis University, is the founder, president, and director of Camp Aranu’tiq, the world’s first overnight summer camp for transgender youth. Nick does training and consulting on gender issues for schools and camps. He recently authored Transgender 101: A Simple Guide to a Complex Issue.
