NASW-WA is pleased to offer the following course:
The discrimination of transgender and gender non-conforming people experience creates an extraordinary stress on psychological and physical health. But it also creates a stress on uninformed providers who are not provided with the necessary education to provide competent services to gender diverse individuals.
Through this training, participants will learn how to create a more inclusive environment for transgender and gender nonconforming people and will gain the necessary skills to provide affirming services and care to all people, regardless of where each client falls on the gender spectrum.
