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-conforming clients (TGNC). As a result, mistakes are frequently made by using outdated treatment strategies and having a lack of education of how to work with gender-diverse clients.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 TGNC 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.

Watch me for this must-attend recording 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  • Avoid outdated treatment plans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, friends and employers
  • Gain tips to discuss hormone treatments and surgical procedures

Don’t wait to have your next TGNC 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.
