Psychotherapy with Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Clients 2: Individual Assessment and Psychotherapy
by Ron Scott
The second video in the Psychotherapy with Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Clients Series focuses some of the most salient assessment and treatment issues that clinicians should know.
Gay, lesbian, and bisexual people utilize mental health services at a rate considerably higher than heterosexuals, and over 95 percent of psychotherapists treat GLB clients in their practice. This program focuses on some of the most salient assessment and treatment issues that clinicians should know.

This video will teach you about:

• The effectiveness of cognitive therapy with this population.
• Implications of internalized homophobia and the importance of hypothesis testing in therapy.
• Assessment of presenting problems and stages of identity development for GLB clients.
• Heterosexist bias in diagnosis of several DSM-IV-TR disorders.

In the last half of the program you’ll see an extraordinary simulation of two therapy sessions by Dr. Christine Padesky with ‘Greg’ on his coming out issues, as well as descriptions of the therapy process and techniques being demonstrated. This award-winning segment, highly rated by graduate school classes, is an outstanding training demonstration for both students and experienced psychotherapists.

What therapists are saying…

"This video focuses on doing therapy with LGBT clients. The therapy sessions in the video are excellent examples of doing affirmative psychotherapy. Clinicians of all levels can learn from this very skillful work!"

-- Sukie Magraw, PhD, Chair, PsyD  Program, JFK University
"Psychotherapy with Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Clients is the best collection of DVDs about the social and psychological dimensions of this community. The series is well researched and covers many significant issues that GLB people meet in the course of their lives. I would recommend them to a wide audience including psychotherapists. family members, and GLB people themselves."

-- Charles Silverstein, PhD, Founding Editor, The Journal of Homosexuality
