The September 30 registration deadline has passed, so no new registrations will be accepted for this discussion group, but we hope you’ll consider joining a future one.

The “Dialog on Therapy” is an ongoing discussion about approaches to psychotherapy for MAPs. B4U-ACT recently developed a brief guide and held a workshop on this topic. We’re also in the process of developing a list of therapists who offer therapy in line with our guide. The “Dialog on Therapy” discussion group delves more deeply into this topic.

We meet once a month for an hour by teleconference. Like our workshops, the group includes mental health and sexuality professionals, researchers, educators, students, MAPs, their family members and friends, and others who have a stake in this topic. Our subject matter includes B4U-ACT’s therapy guide and two already developed models for therapy. Our goals are to gain an understanding of:

  • MAPs’ experiences with therapy
  • what MAPs might look for in therapy
  • concerns therapists and others may have about therapy, and how they might be addressed
  • how recommendations for therapy may be developed and implemented
  • how therapists might publicize their services for MAPs
