Course description

  • Because sex can be defined in more ways than ‘what gender you like’, in this course we will define sexual diversity beyond labels. We will explore a wide variety of sexual orientations and will unveil the challenges faced by those belonging to sexual minorities. To make this learning more accessible, we will share two common case scenarios that appear when working psychotherapeutically with aspects related to the sexuality and romantic relationships of 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.
