Special guest Hershel Russell MEd is a Toronto-based psychotherapist, educator and activist. A transgender man himself, Hershel has been counselling trans people and their families since 1995, and now also offers support to parents of Gender-Independent children. Actively involved in program and policy development with health care providers and government decision-makers, he co-chairs the Education Committee of CPATH (Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health) and is lead mental health trainer for Trans Health Connection, a provincially funded program of Rainbow Health Ontario. As an educator, Hershel believes that learning is always an active process, respect for everyone’s dignity is key, and shared laughter can accomplish much! Participants often say it feels easy to raise difficult questions and to discuss them with complexity in his capacity-building workshops at professional and community events.
