Tavi Hawn, LCSW-C
Course Levels:
7 Hours 30 Minutes



Most of us receive little to no training in our graduate programs on working with transgender, Two Spirit, and gender–expansive people. This training will address the ways that culture, race, religion, economic status, and ability affect trans people in varying ways. Clinicians will gain skills in creating affirming practices and supporting clients and their families in culturally relevant ways. Participants will leave this workshop grounded in an ethical and trauma-informed framework.
