Trans Group Therapies



Trans group therapy sessions, which were previously organized in Çapa Faculty of Medicine, have been held in SPoD Office since 2015, on the first Wednesday of each month, led by psychiatrist Seven Kaptan. During the meetings, where participants share their gender identity based experiences and problems, peer support is provided to participating trans people who are in different stages of their gender transformation process. The sessions are free of charge and are open to everyone who is struggling with issues based on gender identity. Due to the confidentiality principle, no other participant (e.g. cisgender experts in the field or other individuals) is allowed in the meetings unless they have been explicitly invited by SPoD.
