Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Appropriate and timely, very much needed to fill a major gap in multicultural counseling literature."

"An interesting introduction to gay and lesbian client issues. It would be good for practitioners who need practical suggestions and would be an appropriate reference for students wanting more depth than most multicultural courses on issues related to gay men and lesbians. Specific strengths are the material on gay men, youths, parenting and health."

Advises counselors and other helping professionals on working with gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered individuals. Focus is on predicting potential challenges and developing clinical skills. Each chapter begins with a hypothetical case, then provides background context, and ends with specific suggestions for clinical practice. Some subjects discussed include substance abuse, coming out, couples, parenting, spirituality, and youth. Clinical examples provide demonstrations of issues that clients and counselors face.
