Join Us for Our First Time in Los Angeles!

Gender Odyssey Los Angeles is a two-day conference for Professionals seeking to advance their understanding of gender diversity and transgender identities in children, teens, and adults. Leading experts will offer sessions covering gender identity across the lifespan and life experience. Programming is targeted toward medical and behavioral health care providers, teachers and school administrators, social workers, care givers and guardians, attorneys, employers and recruiters, government employees, and students preparing for these professions. Continuing education credits in a number of career fields will be available.

Note: Gender Odyssey Los Angeles aims to establish a core foundation for our work that provides an emphasis on the needs of immigrant communities and communities of color, and, to that effect, we look forward to building relationships—individually and organizationally—within the greater LA area. To do this in a mindful way, we will start our LA conference with one program only—initially, our Professional Track—and add additional programs as our core foundation is strengthened and organizational capacity allows.

Superhero Therapy: Implementation and Practices
Presenter Janina Scarlet, Ph.D.

8:30 AM - 12:45 PM
4 CEUs

  • MEMBER    $45.00
  • NON-MEMBER    $65.00
This course will demonstrate how to incorporate popular culture into evidence-based therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in treating a variety of metal health disorders, such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Given that many people relate to popular culture icons, such as superheroes as well as characters from fantasy (such as Harry Potter), and science fiction (such as Star Wars), the Superhero Therapy approach will demonstrate how therapists can help clients better understand and process their own experiences and promote behavioral changes. Due to the fact that this is a novel approach, the empirical evidence related to its effectiveness is limited. This workshop will present the existing research, as well as provide specific examples and skills in incorporating popular culture in therapy.

Dr. Janina Scarlet is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, a scientist, and a full-time geek. A Ukrainian-born refugee, she survived Chernobyl radiation and persecution. She immigrated to the United States at the age of 12 with her family and later, inspired by the X-Men, developed Superhero Therapy to help patients with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. She has written multiple publications on this topic and has given talks both within the US and internationally. Her book, “Superhero Therapy” released on December 1, 2016 in the U.K. and on August 1, 2017 in the U.S.

Attendance Policy: CE Credit and Certificates will not be issued to those who arrive later than 15 minutes or leave early from any course scheduled time. This policy is highly enforced to ensure compliance with APA Guidelines.
