Overview

"A diverse and extremely useful set of chapters at the cutting edge of thinking on work with sexual minorities...An important and too often neglected aspect of therapist's and counsellor's training which this book does much to correct." - Susie Orbach, author of 'The Impossibility of Sex'

"This book takes the reader inside the multiple worlds of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and examines the different kinds of 'problems in living' that can confront counsellors working with clients from these groups. The book is humanistic, in the broad sense of representing and reinforcing the human capacity to relate, to choose, and to live in accordance with values. Issues are explored through the unfolding of personal and interpersonal dilemmas. 'Issues in therapy' is a welcome addition to the 'Pink Therapy' series edited by Dominic Davies and Charles Neal; they are essential reading for practitioners and trainees." - John McLeod, Professor of Counselling, University of Abertay Dundee

"An excellent resource for trainees, trainers and practitioners. Readers will find coverage of a wide number of areas, not before easily accessible at all, and certainly not in a single volume. This book helps the reader think critically about many 'received notions' within the field of therapy. Irrespective of their theoretical approach, I believe this volume not only aids practitioners to work more effectively and ethically with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender clients but also makes a contribution to anti-oppressive practice generally". - Paul Hitchings, Chair BPS Counselling Psychology Division

Many readers of Pink Therapy (1996 Open University Press) found the affirmative approaches and detailed discussions there of numerous issues of particular concern to lesbian, gay and bisexual clients invaluable. This volume has twelve further areas discussed in clear and informative style by practitioners from their own professional experience and offers guidelines for good practice as well as full references and further resources. With Pink Therapy and Therapeutic Perspectives on Working with Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Clients, from the same editors and publishers, professionals interested in treating clients from these minorities equitably will find a wealth of support, information and guidance not previously readily available.
