Queer Ear for the Straight Therapist:
Helping Straight Clinicians Work with Gays and Lesbians
As a psychotherapist, if you have gay clients, it’s not enough to be gay-friendly. The fact is, even the best-intentioned therapists have some level of homophobia to overcome. From birth, heterosexist culture imprints us to think that heterosexuality is primary, and that any other orientation is inferior. It’s not even enough to be gay yourself.
Gay or straight, we’re taught the homonegative belief that the alternate lifestyle of being gay is a more difficult way to live. But the alternative of living heterosexually is actually harder for gay men, and can lead only to depression and self-defeating, or even self-destructive behaviors.
Learn the issues gay men face. They may surprise you.
Gay Affirmative Psychotherapy, Training for Mental Health Professionals based on the book, “10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do To Improve Their Lives.”
