Event description

Description

Gendered Intelligence, a UK not-for-profit organisation, will be delivering their two day training course designed for mental health professionals in Jersey on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 July 2017.

The course is suitable for psychotherapists, counsellors and psychiatrists who wish to have more knowledge about gender in order to support their clients. There are few professional development opportunities or specific qualifications that assist you to competently support and work alongside trans and non-binary people. Gendered Intelligence is filling that gap by supplementing the tools you already posses through your professional qualification with an insight into how gender works, enabling you to offer therapeutic support to transgender, non-binary and questioning people.

The course is being organised by Liberate, the Channel Islands equality and diversity charity, and is being run to address the problems that trans islanders face in accessing treatment, including lack of gender-specific mental health support whilst waiting to be admitted, often more than 12 months, to see a gender therapist in the NHS. This course will enable Jersey professionals to offer that specialist support during waiting times, at crisis points and when follow ups are needed urgently.
