Topic: Understanding and Welcoming Transgender Clients: An LGBT Cultural Sensitivity Training Going Beyond Best Practices
Presenters: Mandi Kowalski, Field Organizer, Training Coordinator for PROMO, and
Dan Stewart, MSG, SAGE of PROMO Fund Program Coordinator
Understanding what it's like to be transgender can be difficult, especially if you have never met a transgender person. As a practitioner and healthcare provider, it is essential to be comfortable communicating with, and understanding of clients' needs. Join PROMO, Missouri's LGBT advocacy organization, in a conversation about LGBT language, barriers to care in the transgender community, and how to create welcoming spaces and develop best practices for clients and staff.
