Star Trek 101: Everything You Need to Know from Vulcans to Tribbles!

About this Training

Star Trek, the 1966 science fiction television series, is much beloved by fans worldwide for themes that are quite familiar to most therapists: courageous personal discovery, unpacking moral quandaries, and seeking mutual understanding despite differences. Given the importance of these universal experiences, it is of little surprise that nearly 55 years -- and a multitude of spin-offs, books and games -- later, Star Trek maintains a solid foothold in our collective imagination. This training will introduce clinicians to the tenets of the Star Trek Universe, and important themes that can be applied to therapy.
