    The Care and Treatment of Intersex People


    Presenter: Michelle Anklan, CSW


    Description: Michelle takes the approach that the "problem" of intersex conditions is not due to intersex variations themselves, rather contemporary society's binary understanding of sex.  She will also address working with intersex clients and their families/parents who are deciding whether to have their child undergo surgical intervention.  October 26 is Intersex Awareness Day.

    Gender Affirmative Couples Therapy with Transgender/Gender Expansive (TGE) Couples


    Presenter: Shawn V. Giammattei, PhD


    Description: This workshop will explore the key skills necessary to become a gender-affirmative couple therapist. We introduce the deconstruction of our own hetero/cis-normative beliefs around coupling and how these influence the questions we ask and the interventions we use.  We will discuss the unique stressors and issues that both the TGE individual and couple experience that influence the quality of their relationship as well as understanding the resiliency present for these couples.

    Use of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) in Therapy


    Presenter: George Limberakis, CMHC


    Description:  George will discuss how he uses his unique knowledge of our minds and bodies in his practice.  EFT is showing tremendous promise in helping people to discharge long-held emotional energy that causes both psychological and physical distress.
