Talks, Training, & Lecturing

Professor Christina Richards speaking at the British Psychological Society (BPS) DCoP Annual Conference.

I regularly present  at academic conferences, teach in universities, and provide training for organisations such as the College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT); Relate; the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, the Police Service, NHS Trusts and similar organisations.

Training for organisations is usually for half or full days and is on a sliding scale. Please contact me for details at:

I can provide training on any of the chapters in my book being:

  • Introduction to sexuality and gender
  • Transgender (Trans) – Living a different gender from that assigned at birth
  • Intersex / Diversity of Sexual Development (DSD)
  • Cisgender – Living in the gender assigned at birth
  • Non-binary genders – Genderqueer, Neutrois, Agender.
  • Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, and Sadomasochism (BDSM) / Kink
  • Asexuality
  • Bisexuality
  • Lesbian and Gay sexuality
  • Heterosexuality
  • Further Sexualities – Infantilism AB/DL, Fetish, Slash fiction
  • Monogamy
  • Non-monogamy

Each chapter would usually take a minimum of half a day, with a day giving a more reasonable overview. If groups consist of less than fifty delegates training is generally interactive. With groups of over fifty it is usually more didactic or ‘lecture based’ for pragmatic reasons.
