Gender, sexuality and relationship diversity introductory workshop

This two-day workshop presented by two of Britain’s leading therapists and sexologists will provide an opportunity for behavioural and sexual health professionals to update their knowledge and practice on a wide range of issues around gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. This is a field which is moving very rapidly, and it’s our experience that therapists often feel bewildered by the range of identities, and sexual practices and relationship issues clients are presenting for help with.
We will use a mixture of experiential learning as well as more formal didactic and discussion-based learning styles.

Day 1: Exploring Gender, Sexual & Relationship Diversity: Good Practice and Self-Reflection (open to psychologists, psychotherapists, sexologists, medical doctors and also to university students)

Day 2: Clinical Issues and Case Discussions (open to psychologists, psychotherapists, sexologists, medical doctors)

Dr Meg-John Barker is the author of a number of popular books on sex, gender, and relationships, including Queer: A Graphic History, How To Understand Your Gender, Enjoy Sex (How, When, and IF You Want To), Rewriting the Rules, The Psychology of Sex, and The Secrets of Enduring Love. They have also written many books for scholars and therapists on these topics, drawing on their research and therapeutic practice, including the BACP resource on gender, sexual and relationship diversity (GSRD).
