Ryan Sallans Speaking Topics

  • Serving Transgender Clients

    This training is tailored to an organization's setting, for example a mental healthcare facility, non-profit organization or medical setting. The training covers social, legal, and medical barriers which uniquely impact transgender clients. Current standards of care, diagnostic codes, social and medical interventions, and ethical approaches are also discussed.

  • Assessment of Barriers to Care: Working with LGBTQ Clients

    Although there are parallels of treating heterosexual and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) clients, there is an increasing amount of data supporting the fact that LGBT clients face higher levels of health disparities and psychological distress. They may also face significant challenges associated with access to healthcare services, including prevention and screenings due to the lack of cultural competence within healthcare settings. This training is designed to enhance attendees’ understanding of current health trends impacting clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ). Identify current barriers withint healthcare settings, and discuss ways to improve clinician-client communication and interactions.

  • Transgender Employees and the Workplace: Creating Inclusive Environments

    A 2014 report by LGBT marketing and research company, Out Now, found that 53% of transgender employees are not out at work. Through individual reporting, it is being found that for many transgender individuals, the workplace is often the last environment to come out due to fear of how the employee will be treated and also if they will be able to keep their job. Creating inclusive environments that support all employees, including those who have already transitioned, or are beginning the transition process, is rewarding, valued and necessary for compliance with diversity and inclusion policies at the company, state, or federal level. Many companies may have questions surrounding how they can support their employee who is transgender, while also supporting the needs and concerns of their other employees. Having conducted diversity and inclusion training sessions around the nation, Ryan has found one of the best ways to provide support, is through programming that includes open and caring conversations.

  • FTM: Scouting the Unknown

    FTM: Scouting the Unknown assists audiences with understanding what being transgender means, and the hurdles faced by transgender people through terminology and storytelling. In this two-hour presentation (suggested length, can be shortened), Ryan first covers basic terminology and language surrounding biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation. He then moves into the identities that fall underneath the transgender umbrella. After an introduction to language and concepts, he then enters into his own transition from female to male story. His story begins with his childhood and the struggles he had with his body before moving into his adult life where he explores college, romantic relationships, family and his physical and emotional journey related to his transition.
