Location: online


There is much clinical concern around the areas of gender Identity and Gender Dsyphoria.

How might these fraught issues be best approached in clinical practice?

Many practitioners may have thought that this is a vanishingly small population whom we might happily re-direct to specialist services

However the enormous increase in cases of young people presenting with gender identity issues in now means that most of us are now likely to have some contact with the young people struggling with Gender Dysphoria.

This seminar is intended for practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy who are interested in taking their understanding of this difficult terrain beyond the simplicities of “only affirm”. We hope to provide a thoughtful environment in which to do so.
