July 2007 

A group of psychiatrists and psychologists called Shrink Rap meet every month in Johannesburg. They invite guest speakers to talk about various subjects. In July 2007 Robert Hamblin, board member of Gender DynamiX gave a talk to this group about his transition. He used his small films between episodes of telling his life history his battle with Gender Dysphoria.
“I tried to weave a lot of relevant information about Standards of Care in my lecture. I try to convey that there is a lot of information available to take care of a transgender client/ patient. I stressed on numerous occasions that is a world wide movement to de-pathologise Transsexuality from a mental disorder to a medical condition. Most of them had never had a trans client but the reception was very positive.”
