All the answers clinicians need to work effectively with LGBTQ clients.
A therapist who treats LGBTQ clients often must be more than “gay friendly.” Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients have specific needs that require their own knowledge base. This book offers up-to-date information for clinicians treating LGBTQ clients, including new chapters on transgender, sexually fluid, and gender nonconforming clients.
