A practical, accessible, and comprehensive resource on counseling sexual and gender minorities, this text offers readers broad and inclusive coverage of current theory, research, and counseling applications for use with sexual and gender minority clients. With an emphasis on applying theory to practice, the book contains experimental learning activities, practical resources, current strategies, and interdisciplinary insights, making this text a vital resource for those students seeking complete training in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered counseling issues. Since one of the most essential areas for counselors to focus on is understanding the helping professional as "person," Counseling Sexual and Gender Minorities includes a chapter devoted solely to stimulating students to explore their own beliefs, and attitudes towards sexual and gender minorities. In addition, personal exploration exercises throughout the book develop and facilitate this internal investigation and aid readers in recognizing their own fears or phobias and the barriers that people commonly experience in terms of counseling sexual and gender minorities. In addition, author Lynne Carroll explores ways that the unique intersections of race, ethnicity, religion, disability and socioeconomic status shape gender and sexual minorities. Specifically, this text includes coverage of issues related to sexual health and employment and workplace discrimination and the role of helping professionals as advocates for sexual and gender minorities.
