Imaginable Sexual Bodies: Trans Sexualities, Erotic Embodiments, and the Re-Centering of Pleasure
Description: The sexual lives of trans and gender nonconforming individuals are rarely discussed in the clinical literature. And when they are, emphasis is too often placed on the preservation of sexual function or on sexual losses. The images of trans sexualities that emerge from these discourses leaves little room for pleasure and provides few models for clients to delight in. This workshop will shift the conversation from loss to difference and pleasure, and provide participants with creative strategies to enhance practice.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: describe three ways in which trans, non-binary, or gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients are viewed in clinical literature; apply one aspect of this workshop to clinical practice with TGNC clients.
