From the back cover:
This book explores the diversity in lesbian, gay and bisexual lives, with the aim of opening up therapists' understanding of this diversity so that they can work in an ethical, supportive and non-discriminatory way with these individuals and communities.
While previous work in this area has focused on specific aspects of sexuality, this book weaves together the multiple identities that people have, which can be complex, jagged, incomplete and rapidly changing. Taking a closer look at these issues through dedicated chapters on gender, race and ethnicity, spirituality and religion, age, immigration, class and disability, as well as physical and mental health, the authors implicate the notion of a singular 'gay community' and expose the fractions and plurality that exists in society.
Intersectionality, Sexuality and Psychological Therapies is firmly grounded in contemporary theory, research and practice of psychology and covers a breadth of approaches and schools of thought.
