Most therapy is set up in a heterosexist context. Explore the issues facing your gay, lesbian, and bisexual clients--and how to deal with them!

The Therapist's Notebook for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Clients offers therapists treating lesbian, gay, and bisexual clients innovative, practical interventions plus homework and hands-on activities tailored to these populations. Use the notebook to explore the issues surrounding coming out, homophobia in the workplace, spirituality, identity formation, and issues that require a non-heterosexist approach, such as domestic violence and relationship concerns. Grounded in current theory, each chapter explains the rationale for the activity it proposes, includes contraindications, and provides a list of helpful resources for therapists and clients.

Here are just a few of the issues this extraordinary book explores in its four thoughtfully planned sections:

Section I: Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Coming Out and Managing Homophobia and Heterosexism addresses:

  • obstacles to the growth of a healthy GLB identity
  • dealing with the trauma and anxiety that result from discrimination

  • helping bisexuals decide whether to come out or to “pass”
  • coping with internalized homophobic messages

  • financial stability
  • assimilation, queer pride, and everything in between
  • how ethnicity and coupling impact sexual identity
  • negotiating a healthy open relationship
  • sexual concerns, sexual dysfunction, and pleasuring

    Section III: Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Gender, Ethnic, and Sexual Identity Issues addresses “who am I” issues:
  • sexual orientation and gender identity
  • the intersection of sexual and ethnic identity
  • oppression on multiple fronts
  • gender exploration for lesbians

    Section IV: Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Specific Issues tackles concepts including:
  • enhancing resilience through spirituality
  • reconciling with religion
  • spiritual wellness and the spiritual autobiography
  • body image disturbances

Thirty years ago when a gay, lesbian or bisexual person went for therapy, the accepted approach to treatment was to seek a "cure" for the client's homosexual "psychopathology". Today, although the vast majority of psychologists are considerably more compassionate, accepting and the understanding of their gay, lesbian and bisexual clients, they lack a comprehensive source of information regarding this population. "The Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy With Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Clients" aims to educate readers about the identity, challenges and choices of lesbian, gay and bisexual clients. Practising professionals in psychology, counselling and social work will find it useful.

Following the success of Pink Therapy (1996 Open University Press) as a practical guide for therapists, counsellors and others in related professions working with lesbian, gay and bisexual clients in affirmative ways, this volume is the first to address how this can be approached from ten of the major therapeutic perspectives. Each approach is discussed with regard to its historical and theoretical relationship to these client groups and how the approach can be beneficial or negative. Guidelines for using the perspective supportively or practically are given, along with references for further study. The volume marks an important step in the dialogue between theoretical approaches and in the future development of, and debate about, these increasingly important fields in contemporary therapy.

As more clinicians train in mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies, the demand for skills specifically for treating diverse clients grows. In this much-needed edited volume, you’ll find evidence-based strategies for treating gender and sexual minorities with acceptance and compassion for better treatment outcomes.

Gender and sexual minorities face unique concerns and, according to research, are actually more likely to want and seek therapeutic help due to greater levels of psychological distress. But research also shows that many psychologists and therapists do not feel adequately educated or efficacious discussing topics related to sexuality and gender in clinical practice. This book will address this significant gap with evidence-based and best-practice interventions and applications.

Mindfulness and Acceptance for Gender and Sexual Minorities offers a number of practical strategies within a contextual behavioral science framework, including mindfulness and acceptance-based interventions, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), relational frame theory (RFT), and more. With chapters on stigma, shame, relationships, and parenting, this book will be a valuable resource for all therapists.

If you’re a clinician, you understand the ongoing need for cutting-edge, effective approaches for treating a variety of clients. With this guide, you’ll learn about the unique application of contextual behavioral approaches as they relate specifically to the experiences of gender and sexual minorities, and feel better equipped to help all of your clients work toward happiness and health.

  • A look at what society must do if it is to reduce prejudice and discrimination directed at these groups

  • Discussion of the common dynamics of covert and unintentional biases

  • Coping strategies enabling targets to survive such onslaughts
