Gender, Sex and Sexuality

A reflective and interactive workshop for Students of Psychology and Mental Health Professionals.

Gender, Sex and Sexuality
Date: October 17th & 18th, 2020
Time: 9 AM to 12 PM (IST)
Venue: Zoom
Fee: INR 999

Globalization has only brought the spectrum of gender and sexuality to the forefront, when in fact they have been woven into the fabric of our society for centuries. Our understanding of these multilayered concepts is only growing with more research and awareness created by different communities by having conversations, through workshops, social media and pop culture. Along with acknowledging the spectrum of gender, sex and sexuality, it is significant to also be aware of the associated mental, emotional, physical and sexual health concerns.

This two-day interactive and reflective workshop on gender, sex and sexuality explores the meaning and psycho-social implication of gender, influences of sexuality and sexual orientation on mental health, impact of gender dysphoria and sexual health, and practical therapeutic intervention techniques. The workshop aims to bring inclusivity and gender informed work into psycho-therapeutic practice.
