About the event

How do the nuances of diverse gender identities and sexualities impact our clients, and influence how they respond to therapy and to the challenges of life? 

In this webinar, international expert Aisling Leonard-Curtin, co-author of Mindfulness and Acceptance for Gender and Sexual Minorities, will share how experiences as a gender/sexual minority shape psychological flexibility, and how to integrate ACT and other contextual-behavioural approaches to help clients explore and better understand their experiences of gender and sexuality.

In case you won't be able to join us on the night, your ticket will also give access to a recording of the presentation for 3 months.
