Summary

Summary

This book provides a framework for affirmative, empirically supported cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with lesbian, gay, and bisexual clients. Guidelines for competent assessment and treatment are integrated with practical descriptions of widely used CBT applications. In addition to presenting powerful treatment tools for depression, anxiety, and other problems encountered by gay and straight clients alike, the book offers clear-cut guidance on helping individuals and couples cope with the stresses of sexual minority status. Rich case illustrations bring to life the diversity of lesbian and gay communities, highlighting commonalities as well as differences among the issues that clients bring to therapy. Filling a crucial gap in the literature, this is an important resource for therapists in a range of settings, from CBT newcomers to experienced practitioners. Appendices include resources and sample client and therapist forms.

Choice Review

The culturally competent literature guiding psychotherapy across the spectrum of sexuality is scant, particularly in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with the population this book covers. The specific needs of LGB clients and their experiences as a marginalized and stigmatized group provide an important foundation. Martell et al. examine the basics of assessment and treatment of anxiety, depression, and couples issues. Using a tapestry of illustrative case examples and dialogs, the authors offer therapeutic strategies for helping clients reexamine negative core beliefs, improve problem-solving and interpersonal skills, and enhance coping. Chapters emphasize ethical and clinical issues and the future of CBT with this population. ^BSumming Up: Essential.
