Exploring Sexuality, Gender Diversity, and Intersectionality with Sexual Minorities and Transgender or Gender Nonconforming Clients

By Jennifer A. Boisvert, 2018

The Handbook of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity in Counseling and Psychotherapy, edited by Kurt A. DeBord, Ann R. Fischer, Kathleen J. Bieschke, and Ruperto M. Perez, provides a comprehensive overview of the use of affirmative therapy with sexual minority (SM) and transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) clients, focused specifically on their sexual orientation, gender diversity, and intersecting identities. This timely volume explores the distinctiveness, differences, challenges, and treatment needs of this special population. Interweaving theory, research, practice, and policy perspec- tives, this handbook is a foundational guide and resource for readers in psychological fields and related disciplines, such as women’s studies, sociology, political science, and public health. The diversity of topics provides a strong introduction for novices and a satisfying refresher for those with expertise in this area. Readers of Sex Roles will appreciate topics pertinent to women and adolescent girls.
