Trans Genealogies

This seminar focused on the implications of ‘trans’ identifications and repertoires for two key arenas of professional practice: clinical and psychotherapeutic. Themes included: narratives of ‘authenticity’ that guide clinical protocols, psychotherapeutic approaches and patient self-identifications; ‘pathways of care’ surrounding interventions and management of ‘trans’ bodies; professional discourses (educational, diagnostic) and clinical and practice protocols vis a vis patient or client experience; ‘alternative’ therapeutic discourses and the ‘trans’ self-help context.
