Deciphering the Matrix, Part 2 of the Gender/Orientation Series™, is an interactive course conducted at the YES Institute in Miami, Florida. Teachers, counselors, mental health therapists and nursing professionals can also earn continuing education (CE) and master plan point (MPP) credits for Florida State licensure renewal (CE details below).
The labels “gay,” “lesbian,” “bisexual,” and “heterosexual” have gone unexamined for a long time. These quick categorizations, so succinct and cemented, have cost us the opportunity to really learn about orientation. This course inquires, “What is orientation?” and allows participants to uncover just how little we know about what orientation is and what it is not. For the full course description, visit:
