Description

It’s never easy being different, and the kid who was bullied, humiliated, and isolated for standing out as “Other” bears a particular form of trauma that diminishes creativity and purpose in adulthood. Whether it’s a childhood story of hatred for a child’s gender nonconforming behaviors; a racial, cultural, or class background that’s different from that of the dominant group; or even for having a conspicuous scar, body shape, or other physical feature; the adult memory network of social pain often results in rejection sensitivity, risk aversion, and a diminished capacity to recognize possibilities to effect change.

As a violation of relationships, the legacy of Otherness trauma is also reflected in relationship patterns of compensation, control, self-victimization, escape, and even predation in marriages, parenting, careers, and other significant connections in which adults participate.

In this recording, you’ll have hands-on learning in recognizing the hero’s journey within your client’s story of Otherness, and possibly even your own. This will include tracing not only the traumatic impact of Otherness in relationship, career, and other life decisions, but in finding the unique power and voice that comes with owning Otherness as a source of creativity and better connections throughout the client’s life.

Transgender therapist Dr. Stacee Reicherzer, a nationally recognized LGBTQIQ expert, brings her unique blend of sass and experience as a clinician, educator, researcher, and storyteller for a highly engaging and emotional day of learning.
