Exploring the Gender Spectrum: 

for Ourselves and for Our Clients

 I was able to get an educational copy of the film Straight-laced to view - about how issues of gender affect youth and everyone.  Powerful documentary created for educational purposes - not one to find through usual movie sources. 

you can see the trailer at:


 Small group exploration. We’ll watch current videos on gender, share our own cultural, family and personal experiences and explore how they affect us and our clients. This workshop will create a safe space to share an often complex and emotional subject. Appropriate if you are currently working with transgender, transqueer or questioning clients or if you want to create a safe environment for clients to explore gender.

You will expand your knowledge of gender and how it affects people in their daily lives.

Learn how to create a safe environment for clients to explore gender issues.

Meaning, Myths, and Messages.

Small group exploration. Basic introduction to transgender issues in society and in therapy. Through videos and sharing we’ll look at the meaning people associate with transgender individuals, including the myths and misrepresentations. Opportunities for sharing personal issues related to working with clients (countertransference).  Goal is to support therapists in our own journeys around gender to create a safe place for transgender individuals to receive therapy.

You will have an opportunity to explore countertransference in a safe environment.

Expand your understanding of the complexity of transgender issues in our society.

Workshops will be experiential, fun, and practical. 

Focusing on supporting therapists so that they can empower clients and together we can help transform the world. 

Topics will include working with GLBTQQIAP and P* clients, exploding the gender spectrum, how to use Aikido and somatic practices in therapy, Psychological Shamanism, working with spiritual issues, using clients’ stories for healing, self-disclosure and countertransference, and other subjects.

Program Goals: To assist licensed therapists to fully explore and embrace their authentic selves so that they can help clients achieve their fullest potential.

Increase therapists understanding and ability to serve specific populations that are at higher risk for suicide and depression. Specifically focused on the GLBTQQIAP & P* population, cross-cultural and those experiencing spiritual crises.  

Create a safe learning environment and relevant educational materials to encourage clinicians to explore their own personal issues related to gender, sexuality, spirituality, and culture. Also address related biases, and counter transference issues that could affect clients.

Give clinicians tools to assess and treat clients during spiritual crisis and be able to distinguish between psychotic episodes and spiritual crises.

As clinicians become more knowledgeable and more comfortable within themselves they help clients by decreasing the risk of suicide and depression within these populations to allow fuller expression of the full spectrum of our individuality.
