This current and comprehensive handbook will guide educators, students, and clinicians in developing the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to work effectively with LGBTQI+ populations. Twenty-five chapters written by experts in the field provide direction for working with clients in an authentic, ethical, and affirmative manner that is tailored to their individual strengths, needs, and identity. The book is divided into four sections, which explore the science behind gender and affectional orientation; developmental issues across the life span and treatment issues; the specialized needs of nine distinct populations; and the intersectionality of ethnicity and overlapping identities, the role of religion, and counselor advocacy. To further a deeper understanding of the content, each chapter contains an “Awareness of Attitudes and Beliefs Self-Check,” a case narrative relating to the material covered, questions for discussion, and a list of online resources. The book concludes with an extensive glossary of terms, both preferred and problematic, which counselors working with these communities should understand and use appropriately.
“This is an excellent text for master’s and doctoral program multicultural/diversity courses. It is time that mental health professionals reach out to further understand the LGBTQI+ community, and this book, written with empathy, knowledge, and wisdom, is a strong addition to the field.” —Catherine B. Roland, EdD, LPC, NCC President, American Counseling Association 2016–2017 “This is the logical ‘next’ book on counseling with LGBTQI+ people written by a new generation of LGBTQI+ authors and researchers. These new voices offer a fresh vision of where the LGBTQI+ community is at this point in history, and give a road map to current issues and interventions that are being used to help LGBTQI+ people.” —Mark Pope, EdD Former President, American Counseling Association Curators’ Distinguished Professor, University of Missouri–Saint Louis
