Introduction to Gender Affirmative Practice for
Professionals Supporting Trans and Gender Diverse People

This workshop aims to assist therapists to develop basic cultural competence in working with trans and gender diverse people. Participants will gain an understanding of the nature of gender identity, an increased awareness of the impacts of marginalisation and stigmatisation, as well as develop clinical skills towards building confidence in working with transgender and other gender diverse people.
