Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (MSPP), in Jessica Stahl’s class Psychology of Diversity & Difference in the Counseling Psychology master’s program. As before, I was primarily representing Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC); MSPP has been having a few trans people from a few orgs in to speak every year for years, including SpeakOut. Also as before, it was pretty informal, and we had a Q&A session after. This class was quieter than the previous ones, but they had had an even better trans education before I arrived. It’s a good gig for many reasons – my fascination with psychology and the school’s recent move to Newton (my second hometown) among them. Alas, this will be my last visit to MSPP, as I am moving to DC at the end of January. My predecessor was Rachel K. Zall – yes, a tough act to follow! – who moved to Philly; it will be interesting to see who my/our successor is. And if you're in the market for trans-led, personalized trans educational services, check out MTPC's page about what we offer.
