Workshop Description

In this workshop we will explore ways to provide effective support, guidance, and information to Transgender client's, their families, friends and co-workers. Learn what you need to know in order to be helpful to the Transgender client as well as deepen your capacity to address gender related issues. Discover the richness and diversity within the Transgender/Nonbinary population, learn how to assist your client through their unique gender experience, and explore the root causes of shame and gender dysphoria inherent in an often non-affirming society.
