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.
