About the seminar

Dr Giovanardi will review the history of psychoanalysis and the experience of trans people. He will illustrate what are the strengths and potentials of the psychoanalytic approach when working with trans patients and will provide clinical examples from his practice.

The idea of this seminar is to create a safe environment where it will be possible to ask any question about the topic. Dr Giovanardi welcomes participants to write questions to him in advance, so that we can make the most out of his expertise. Please email your questions to [email protected] with the subject ‘Questions for Dr Giovanardi’.
