TEDx Speaker Trains Hume Program

Recently, Hume's Contra Costa Outpatient Services Program was lucky enough to have a TEDx speaker participate in their didactic series. Rev. Dr. Paula Stone Williams covered women's equality and empowerment and male privilege and she spoke to her experience with her clients that she counsels and how some relationships with her clients changed after she transitioned. She also spoke to how to work with transitioning populations and gave some advice on what to watch out for.
We sincerely thank Paula for taking time out of her day to provide such a wonderful training to our clinicians. Her TEDx talk can be found by clicking here.
