In this course we will explore the role that gender plays in our society, day-to-day lives, and the formation of our identities as men, women, and non-binary folk. We will define gender incongruence, dysphoria, euphoria and other concepts associated with gender-diverse communities. We will unveil the steps taken by trans folk in order to socially and medically transition, and to make this learning more tangible, we will share two common case scenarios that appear when working psychotherapeutically with trans and non-binary people.
All our courses are informed by scientific research, the experiences of our clients, as well as our own. We vouch for working from a place of compassion and reflection, and throughout you will be encouraged to challenge your own preconceptions and ideas around gender, sexuality, and diversity.
