In 2015, LifeWorks developed The Green House Program. A part-time, paid, post-graduate psychotherapy training fellowship, this 12-month mentoring program is for recent grads, newly licensed clinicians, and others.
The Green House program is geared specifically to professionals who want to develop specific therapeutic skills & cultural competence with clients including those who actively identify as or are exploring sexuality, erotic identity, gender and non-normative relationship configurations such as:
- LGB, trans and gender queer
- non-monogamous (open, swinging, poly-affective or polyamorous relationships)
- sex work/erotic labor
