Human Sexuality Education
All of us grow up with toxic narratives of how our bodies are “supposed to” function and how we “should” experience pleasure, but for trans and non-binary folx these narratives pose particular problems, as they prematurely foreclose the stunning diversity and erotic possibility of trans sexualities. Unfortunately, few therapists are trained to help trans and non-binary folx navigate pleasure-positive sexuality, and the therapeutic relationship is frequently marked by empathic failures concerning their erotic lives. This highly-interactive workshop proposes a model of sitting with trans and non-binary clients and hosting “intimate justice”-centered explorations of erotic embodiment.
To Pre-Order Lucie’s book,
Lucie is a queer, non-binary femme (pronouns: she/they) and a resident in counseling at Creating Change, PLLC. She completed her MA in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2018. During her course of study at Pacifica, she was privileged to receive supervised training in counseling within the Student Counseling Center at Washington and Lee University (Lexington, VA) as well as at The Women’s Initiative (Charlottesville, VA).
She also has a PhD in French from Northwestern University (2008), where she specialized in erotic literature and histories of sexuality. Lucie’s background in literature and history attunes her to the powerful ways that myth, image, metaphor, and cultural scripts shape and inform the narratives we carry with us as we move through the world as well as how these narratives can write themselves on our bodies.
In addition to her work as a therapist and as a sexuality educator, she is also the author of the book Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments (Routledge, forthcoming May 2021).
