As a result, mistakes are frequently made by using outdated treatment strategies and having a lack of education of how to work with gender diverse clients.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

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and I will show you the power of affirmative care for you and your clients to: • Overcome the knowledge barrier • Avoid outdated treatment plans • Learn and differentiate correct terms such as gender queer, gender fluid and cisgender • Breakthrough strategies to help your client tell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!
