I went to a CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists) training conference on May 5 and 6 in order to get an in-person account of what is happening in my profession, in particular regarding gender ideology. I attended because I wanted to hear firsthand what is being taught to my colleagues.
They said some wild stuff in the trainings. I will be sharing some of that here, but I will focus on why I believe that the trans activists know their narrative is under threat:
1) They said it: Linda K. Reeves, WPATH GEI Certified Gender Specialist, said she was afraid of the new bills being passed in the Republican states.
2) They asked the audience not to film their presentation because it’s a “tumultuous and hostile environment.”
3) This luncheon brought up many gender-critical talking points and attempted to debunk them, albeit very poorly. This leads me to believe that counter messages are being heard.
