From Closed to Open: One Program’s Trauma-informed Evolution from All-Male to Gender Diverse

Stevens is proud to share its process of becoming a safe and affirming environment for gender-diverse youth in our historically all-male residential treatment facility. We will explore treatment considerations and wisdom gained through our quality improvement efforts. Stevens is now a forward-thinking environment actively working towards equity for gender-diverse youth.
