This unique resource provides strengths-based, group counseling strategies designed to meet the needs of LGBTQI clients in a variety of settings. Drs. Goodrich and Luke capture the developmental concerns of LGBTQI individuals throughout the life cycle as they establish and maintain intimate relationships, create families, encounter career concerns, and navigate other milestones and transitions. Illustrative case examples and interventions throughout the text, as well as warnings and recommendations, make this an ideal resource for practice and group work courses.
After a discussion of the history of group work with the LGBTQI community, the planning and process issues that group leaders should consider in their work, and relevant ethical and legal concerns, the authors explore a range of group types and pertinent issues. Individual chapters focus on the following types of counseling: child and adolescent; same-gender adult; intersex and transgender; coming out/disclosure; school, community outpatient, and residential; couples and family; substance abuse; grief and loss; and advocacy. Chapters on group work supervision and the importance of allies round out the book.
