The SAT Project's Michael Crocker Will Present
Fixed or Fluid: Gender & Sexuality in Same-Sex Partners
As Part Of NYSSCSW's 51st Annual Education Conference - Emerging Voices
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2020
10:00AM - 12:30PM via Zoom
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE 51ST ANNUAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE:
Gender and sexuality are being explored as constructs rather than genetic or biological determinism. Clinicians need to listen closely to the development of these constructs. Same-sex partners often feel perplexed when homophobia, sexism, misogyny, and social values get intertwined leaving it difficult to flesh out relationship roles due to socially constructed narratives. These narratives can then result in counter-transferential interference if left unknown, unobserved and unformulated.
This talk will weave in theories of gender, sexual identity and the stages of self-acceptance as well as false versus true self-identification. We as clinicians need to overturn limited and limiting models of gender and sexuality, no matter where our patients fall on these spectrums. We need to help them discover where they are landing and how to tolerate ambiguity and fluidity.
After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
Describe some of the struggles of same-sex relationships.
Explain what is meant by the social construct of gender.
Define the meaning of the social construct of sexuality.
Explain the social construction of same-sex relationships.
List three ways of how to intervene with the use of individual, couples and group therapy as it relates to sexuality and gender.
