Is gender merely what we have between our legs or is it more complex? The availability of technological interventions that modify the body is a fact of modern life, making us rethink dominant and popular assumptions about nature and nurture, chance and necessity, masculinity and femininity, life and death, motherhood and fatherhood.

Contemporary experiences with transgender people bring to the fore issues of embodiment. These issues affect both cisgender people--those whose self-perception of their gender matches the sex they were assigned at birth--and trans people--those who identify with a gender other than the sex they were assigned at birth. Such experiences challenge traditional notions of gender, of sex, of sexual orientation, and of sexual identity, while also reorienting psychoanalytic practice. 


  1. Describe the individuals whose self-perception of their gender differs from the manner in which their gender is defined either biologically or socially. 
  2. Discuss ways to address psychoanalysts' prejudices in regards to patients whose self-gender perception is at odds with the larger society. 
  3. Describe an innovative framework for treating sexual and social differences.
