Course Description:

Early in my career, I recognized that without training in affirmative practice, mental health providers are at risk of causing harm to their transgender and gender non-binary clients (TGNB). As a result, mistakes are frequently made by using outdated treatment strategies and having a lack of education of how to work with gender diverse clients.

Today, I know that providing affirmative care practices are critical to ensure the safety of your TGNB clients. I will give you an insider’s perspective and guide you step-by-step through navigating the challenges your clients face that are often overlooked by mainstream clinical approaches.

Join me for this must attend workshop and I will show you the power of affirmative care for you and your clients to:
  • Overcome the knowledge barrier
  • Avoid outdated treatment plans
  • Learn and differentiate correct terms such as gender queer, gender fluid and cisgender
  • Breakthrough strategies to help your client tell their partner, families, friend and employers
  • Gain tips to discuss hormone treatments and surgical procedures
Don’t wait to have your next TGNB client educate you about their challenges and clinical concerns! Begin your journey now to start providing a safe place for all your clients to genuinely be themselves.

Hope to see you soon!
