Trying to think psycho-dynamically about a service for transgender people

Prof. Paolo Valerio

Gender is a core aspect of human experience and crosses biological, psychological, social, cultural, and religious categories. It is difficult to convey the depth of feeling of bodily wrongness that many trans people live with. Mental health professionals may be perceived as gate keepers who hold the key to their salvation or who are denying them their only chance of rescue. Feelings are intense and there is often an urgent desire for action that will bring relief. In such circumstances, maintaining a rational frame-work for thinking can become very difficult.
