The final segment shows a reenactment of a compelling cross-cultural therapy session by Dr. Christine Padesky with a Korean lesbian client.

What therapists are saying…

"This video does a terrific job giving a nuanced picture of the potential issues confronting LGB individuals of color. Experts address issues specific to Latino, African American and Asian American individuals. The simulated therapy session beautifully illustrates some of the complexities faced by LGB people of color."

-- 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
