Becoming a Gay Affirmative Therapist

March 1, 2017 160 17 No Comments


In part 2 of our series, Dr. Joe Kort and Jim Brillon discuss the necessary orientation and process for becoming a gay-affirmative therapist. Drawing upon Dr. Kort’s quintessential book: Gay-Affirmative Therapy for the Straight Clinician, we discuss addressing our own internalized homophobia as therapists, educating ourselves about, and engaging with the LGBT community. We also discuss the crucially important aspect of recognizing that gay adults were once gay children, who developed along a different path than heterosexual adolescents.
