Summary "This book is a theoretical and practical guide for individuals who teach and train about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) psychology in diverse groups and settings. Each chapter approaches sexual and gender diversity from a resilience, wellness-focused framework, with the overall goal of furthering social justice for LGBTQ individuals. Balancing the conceptual literature with practical examples and case illustrations, the collection features: a review of ethical guidelines, laws, and practice standards related to LGBTQ rights and professionals' obligations; innovative teaching techniques, activities, and strategies to understand and reduce minority stress and marginalization; tips for scaffolding students' knowledge regarding identity development; examples of how to support clinical trainees' skill development in working with LGBTQ clients; and useful tools for LGBTQ education in the community, including health care settings, schools, businesses and government agencies, and religious organizations. Other specific topics covered include affirmative language and terminology; coming out issues; classroom and behavioral management strategies; intervention and prevention efforts relevant to LGBTQ communities; and the impact of history, identity, culture, and community on various aspects of functioning for LGBTQ individuals"--Publicity materials.
