LGBTQ Inclusive Practice Webinar
Expand your accessibility to clients by providing a safe, and inclusive space that promotes and delivers exceptional person-centered care.
People with diverse genders and/or sexualities, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender clients come from all cultures and walks of life. Their lived experiences and potential differences in gender and/or sexualities, as compared to the broad population, require further understanding to be able to provide person-centered care.
You can improve your knowledge, skills, and confidence when working with people with a diverse gender and/or sexuality allowing person-centered care by taking this webinar. This is a blended approach to learning with a self-paced eLearning and webinar facilitated by a qualified ACON facilitator. This training will help you expand your understanding of people with a diverse gender and sexuality and communities through discussion with like-minded professionals, video testimonials, and engaging in learning activities.
