The dialog begins Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 11:00 am North American Eastern Time.Registration deadline: Saturday, September 30.
Are you interested in being part of 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. Whether or not you attended our workshop or wish to join our list, if you’re interested in delving into this topic, consider participating in our discussion group.
We’ll meet the first Saturday of every month from 11:00 am to noon eastern time by teleconference, starting October 7. Like our workshops, the group is open to mental health and sexuality professionals, researchers, educators, students, MAPs, their family members and friends, and others who may have a stake in this topic. Our subject matter will include B4U-ACT’s therapy guide and two already developed models for therapy. Our goals will be 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
There is no cost to join this discussion group other than what your telephone service provider may charge you for calling our conference call number. (We have telephone numbers in most countries outside the U.S. for the convenience of international participants.) Simply complete the registration form here. Registration deadline is Saturday, September 30.
