Site icon Gender Exploratory Therapy Association



GETA is an association of therapists who believe that individuals experiencing gender-related concerns ought to be treated using a whole person approach.

Many mental health clinicians have come to realize that in recent years, our field has lost its way when it comes to treating gender-questioning youth. For more than a century, people have turned to psychotherapy for help with psychological distress of all kinds, and we have good evidence that it is effective at helping with a range of problems. Psychotherapy aims to explore and open things up, not shut things down or concretize them. The medicalization of gender distress goes against the basic principles of good therapy. GETA aims to promote the use of psychotherapy for the treatment of gender issues, offering a psychological approach to psychological distress.
