The MOU? It's about me and you

This online event will develop your practice to engage with the Memorandum of Understanding on ‘Conversion Therapy’ 2017


About this event

How do we support clients who come seeking some kind of ‘cure’ for their gender or sexual diversity? Can we be of genuine psychotherapeutic openness to all that the client is and experiences, even when placing limits around what psychotherapy can provide? This transformative webinar will explain the Memorandum of Understanding on ‘Conversion Therapy’ 2017 and how affects everyone. It will provide resources for your practice to engage with it and help you to a part of the movement to open up our rich diversity of practice to the infinite spectra of human experience.


You will discover:

  • how to recognise the subtle or overt issues around conversion therapy for your client and for you
  • ethical contracting
  • why there is no one-size-fits-all solution to abusive therapy for gender and sexual minorities
  • how we can support clients in their unique psychotherapeutic journey
  • what are your practice-specific contributions to ending abusive therapy.

This event is for UKCP members only.


A pre-study pack will be sent to all registrants prior to the training and will require 6-8 hours of preparation and post-training reflection and activity.


In order to fully participate and benefit from this training some engagement with the pre-study pack prior to attendance is vital. How and what time you give to this depends on your own learning style and current depth of appreciation of the material.
