What Our Students say:
I learned how to competently and confidently work with transgender individuals who struggle with gender dysphoria. I learned about the transition process, the importance of not making assumptions, the right questions to ask, the importance of collaborating with other professionals, and providing proper referrals for additional support. Additionally, I learned how to write and what to include in carry letter and Gender Affirming Surgery letters
This will change how I practice as it will make me more aware and understanding of the transition process as well as how to appropriately treat and address transgender individuals. It has taught me as well how to be an advocate and in what areas I can work on promoting and creating more access to transgender care.
The training was very informative, interesting, and will certainly promote my ability to work with the transgender community. I feel that much more competent to work with the transgender community and regret not taking this training sooner.
Most everything was new! The knowledge I have obtained has already helped me to make my treatment forms more gender affirming and has helped me with my language and pronoun usage to be more affirming in my care.
I loved all the focus groups. I also loved the depth of information on culture, religion, and issues related to coming out as Trans.
I greatly appreciated all the sharing on knowledge and experience. This was the best program I have ever taken in my time as a therapist.
It's great that it that there was an option to take this comprehensive course. I liked that I felt the course was in a professional and inclusive environment, with best speakers and faculty. The Panels were phenomenal. Well organized and detailed with wealth of information and a plethora of valuable Resources and Support.
The practical information about needs and medical interventions was massively helpful. I have a much better idea of what questions to ask, how to support / guide through various processes.
I learned a lot about the actual process of transition. This will allow me to better help prepare my clients for their transition.
I just wanted to thank you again for everything. I had joint commission come to my door at the VA this week; The woman asked me if I had a specialty and I told her I am the LGBT VCC. She was intrigued. I told her about our program, what I do, and my certification. She put me on the agenda and came to spend time with me. Not to audit, but to learn. She took notes and was so thrilled by my knowledge, especially in transgender care. I explained about the ITCA program, showed her the WPATH standards of care, and emphasized consistent, insistent, and persistent. She wants to bring some of this knowledge forward to struggling organizations. In the end, we got a glowing review because of ME!!! LOL, and I owe that to YOU!! Thank you for the program and your continued support!! ❤
“Now I feel more confident adding Transgender Care to my practice. This course has made me a better therapist.”
“I loved the transgender panels and the way they have overcome all obstacles”
Excellent content and assignments that build on my knowledge, reinforcement, and expanding my practice. The course exceeded all of my expectations.
I thoroughly enjoyed courses from here and hope to expand on my gained knowledge about the Transgender Community. The courses as well as the examples are well presented, easy to follow and engaging. This training changed how I will do therapy and may have changed the total population with whom I may work.
