Working with gender, sexual and relationship diversities
Dominic Davies will be leading this one-day training, offering some of the most contemporary thinking about providing therapy for the full range of GSRD1 clients seeking help. We shall explore some of the core concepts and common themes when working with these populations (examining the role of minority stress, microaggressions, intersectionality, and the impact of shame and trauma on GSRD people).
His training, suitable for experienced and trainee counsellors alike, will invite participants to engage in the process of self-reflection and experiential learning. We can only accompany our clients as far as we have gone ourselves. The Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy v.2 signed by all the leading therapy bodies in 2018, makes specific requirements and obligations concerning training. We shall explore how we as therapists should respond to requests to change gender and sexuality when coming from deeply conflicted members of the community.
