Welcome to GETA

We are here because those who are exploring gender identity or struggling with their biological sex should have access to therapists who will provide thoughtful care without pushing an ideological or political agenda.

We believe that skilled, ethical exploratory therapy is appropriate for those with gender dysphoria, their families, and detransitioners.

The Teenage Brain

By Sallie Baxendale. Neuroscience: Decision Making and The Teenage Brain Although the legal system assigns the arbitrary age of 18 years to the onset of adulthood, sophisticated neuroimaging studies demonstrate that the human brain doesn’t actually stop developing until we reach our mid-twenties, a fact that is beginning to be recognised in the criminal justiceContinue reading “The Teenage Brain”

Collision with Reality: What Depth Psychology Can Teach Us about Victimhood Culture and Teen Anxiety

By LISA MARCHIANO. When Carl Jung was a 12-year-old schoolboy, he was shoved to the ground by another child, hitting his head on the pavement, and nearly losing consciousness. Instantly, he grasped the opportunities created by this attack. ‘At the moment I felt the blow, the thought flashed through my mind: “Now you won’t haveContinue reading “Collision with Reality: What Depth Psychology Can Teach Us about Victimhood Culture and Teen Anxiety”

Latest podcast from GENDER: A WIDER LENS

71 – Gender: The American State of Affairs with Jesse Singal Gender: A Wider Lens Podcast

Jesse Singal was instrumental in shining a light on the defamation of Dr. Ken Zucker in 2016. Then, two years later, he became even more widely known in the gender world for his seminal, long-form piece in the Atlantic, “When a Child Says She’s Trans.” In this conversation, we discuss flaws in the science of gender dysphoria treatment and the misrepresentation of research findings in the media. We also look at the recent pronouncements from the Biden Administration, new state legislation, and Health and Human Services proposals. We discuss how all of this impacts our understanding of complex issues and shapes the American political landscape around gender today.

Journalism allows Jesse to follow a subject to the core of an issue. Before Jesse became known for his Atlantic piece, he was already interested in psychology fads. Stella enjoys self-help books. In his new book, The Quick Fix, Jesse argues that Americans turn to fad psychology because the real problems are too big to be solved. Researchers have been known to give credence to work that does not warrant it. Bad journalism abounds and Jesse often follows up bad stories with the facts. Stella states that maybe the Dutch study should be more thoroughly examined by Jesse. Writing and publishing articles on gender is complicated. Jesse says Republicans are taking the gender issue to the state level. Politicians have no idea of what the real science around the issue is. Sasha asks Jesse if he believes this to be a medical scandal. In 1972, Sweden was the first country to bring in gender recognition. Many studies are funded to procure a certain message. Religions may tell young adults that a platonic kernel exists somewhere within them. Puberty often helps resolve dysphoria. Stella shares her example. Shasha wonders how accurate current psychological assessments are and if they should be used to forecast the future. Jesse describes the subscription-based journalism model.
