In this course, we delve into the complex relationship that trans and non-binary individuals form with the mirror. We’ll explore how our senses, particularly interoception, proprioception, and exteroception, play a role in perceiving gender incongruence. We’ll also discuss the challenges faced by trans and non-binary individuals in their journey towards self-acceptance and affirmation.
To make this learning journey more relatable, we’ll share real-life case scenarios that highlight the psychotherapeutic aspects related to the self-perception and body image of trans and non-binary people.
Our courses are grounded in scientific research, enriched by the lived experiences of our clients, and our own professional insights. We advocate for a compassionate and reflective approach, encouraging you to challenge your own preconceptions and ideas around gender, body image, and diversity.
