Course Content

This one-day seminar for professional practice explores how various aspects of “trans” are essential to considerations of sexuality. While trans is linked to gender today, it is implicated in transgenerational and transferential aspects of clinical and therapeutic work.

Seminar will include:

  • Developing a knowledge of transference, transgenerational, and transgender issues and exploring how they impact on clinical work today.
  • Assessing how knowledge of these themes and considering their application is invaluable in directing the treatment, as distinct to directing the client.
  • Seminar includes psychoanalytic theory, short case studies, and analysis of key themes and their significance.
  • Emphasis will be on participation and group discussion.
  • Short readings will be made available in advance to participants.

Online Classroom Delivery

Our online classes are run as tutorials, that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online portal Zoom™ simultaneously.

Zoom™ provides and integrative online environment for students and Lecturers to interact and engage in the learning. This platform facilitates discussion polls, sharing of slides, videos resources and much, much more.

To foster more intimate learning environments the use of breakout rooms is also implemented, allowing for the safe and experiential triadic learning practice that we have found so successful.

All of our sessions are accessible through computer and mobile devices and we have a structured and robust technology department to support all faculty and students through their online learning journey. To encourage flexibility, and ss best practice, we also record all our sessions, these are made accessible only to the students in that class to review content whenever is convenient to them
