Gender and Sexual Development and Identity


This in-depth, two-day event will be led by Professor Christina Richards and two of Affinity’s founders, Diane Hassall and Keeley Mardon. They will take you on an immersive journey into gender and sexual development and identity.

Professor Richards, a leading psychologist, researcher and author specialising in Gender and Sexual Diversity, and Mental Health, will explain all aspects of gender transition: medical, legal, emotional to enable you to work more confidently and competently with clients exploring or undergoing gender transition.

You’ll learn about sexual development and changes throughout the lifespan – from birth to old age.

We’ll explore the spectrum of sexual identity and attraction, challenging misconceptions and getting terminology right. And importantly, we’ll consider the 2nd Memorandum of Understanding against Conversion Therapy and what it means for you as a therapist.
