Tip Cards

To accompany Weiland presentations and trainings, we have created a series of take-away tip cards that outline a variety of topics including asking and disclosing pronouns, explaining the difference between sexuality and gender, and more in order to provide folks with tangible reminders and best practices in working towards gender and sexual inclusivity.

For access to these cards and the toolkits they’re a part of, contact us at

World Sexual Health Day

Gender & Sexual Identities Consult Group

Weiland Health Initiative holds a biweekly multidisciplinary clinical consultation group that focuses on issues related to gender and sexual identities. Our group includes psychologists, social workers, psychology trainees, psychiatrists, and physicians. Our group offers a safe space for discussing cases, as well as a chance to work together with the aim of greater social justice and inclusivity on campus. It also provides an opportunity to reflect together on our own identities, and how they impact our work and worldviews.

Gender & Sexual Identities Clinical Training Rotation

Each spring quarter, we offer a 10-week clinical rotation focused on providing psychotherapy to students across the spectrum of gender and sexual identities. This rotation is designed for our pre-doctoral psychology interns, as well as for other clinicians on staff who wish to improve their competence in this area. The rotation tends to be interactive, engaging and unconventional in its teaching techniques. Topics covered include:

  • queer theory and identity development
  • queer history
  • queer family building
  • kink/BDSM
  • consensual nonmonogamy/polyamory
  • affirming language
  • sexuality and faith
  • trans identities
  • interpersonal and sexual violence in queer relationships
  • queer people of color
  • bisexuality and pansexuality
