If you’re a Counsellor, Therapist or Mental Health Professional offering support to GSRD clients, being aware of the specific issues bisexual people and their partners face is vital. You may encounter a variety of bispectrum identities and variance in bisexuality as well as the complexities of mixed orientation relationships. You’ll need to be aware of the impact of internalised biphobia and bi-negativity and feel equipped to offer bi-affirmative interventions that facilitate positive outcomes for clients.

If you’d like to feel confident that you can offer a welcoming, affirmative and supportive service to bisexual clients and their partners this online-learning CPD module is for you.
