Gender Dysphoria in Young People: Controversy, Compromise, and Consensus?

The treatment of gender dysphoria is controversial. On the one hand the ‘affirmation model’ involves transitioning a young person to the appearance of their preferred gender using puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, while on the other hand the ‘cautious, conventional approach’ offers psychotherapeutic exploration of the causes of the gender identity concerns and avoids hormonal interventions. This webinar highlights the key issues in this clinical discourse. Case examples compliment the presentations.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in Contemporary Psychiatric Practice & Mental Health Care

Learn about the valuable contributions of psychodynamic psychotherapy to psychiatric practice and mental health care, both within the public and private mental health systems.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is effective for a wide range of mental health presentations, including depression, anxiety, panic, complex trauma and psychophysiological states, and the benefits of therapy grow after treatment has ended. However, current professional group and sociopolitical pressures are endangering psychodynamic psychotherapy and continuity of care in psychiatric practice. Following the presentations, participants will be able to join with the presenters for further discussion.
