TransFormations 2021: Trans Lives in the 21st Century

Every two years, the Psychotherapy Center for Gender and Sexuality, a division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, sponsors a clinical conference exploring the psychodynamics of psychotherapeutic theory and practice in the context of trans identities.

Our 7th biannual conference, November 13, 2021, will focus on consideration of living as transgender/gender non-binary (TGNB) in the 21st Century. How are clinicians approaching psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with TGNB people in this first quarter of the 21st Century? What are the challenges for our clients and us in this current climate? How are we prepared to meet what’s next? What clinical skills should we be focused on to meet clinical demands? We have brought clinicians and academics across disciplines to broaden the dialogue on these topics.
