Portland Plant Medicine Gathering: Transgender Essentials for Clinical Interactions

Join Emiliano Lemus and Lizanne Deliz for this workshop at the Portland Plant Medicine Gathering.

We will review the essentials for working with transgender and gender nonconforming clients. Using a practical, case-based approach, we will discuss transgender cultural competence. This will include sex and gender positive tools for discussing sensitive health topics, and the importance of approaching clients in a trauma-informed manner. We will also review structuring clinical spaces to reflect transgender inclusion. Participants will emerge with a grounded understanding of the health and social concerns faced by many trans clients, as well as best practices for fostering healing.
