  • Creating 'LGBT-Affirmative Therapists': Critical Reflections on The New Psychotherapy of Sexual Orie

    Since the declassification of homosexuality as a mental illness in 1973, psychology has transformed the way it approaches sexual orientation and gender identity issues in scientific research and clinical practice. The paradigmatic shift from psychopathology to identity has corresponded with the introduction of “LGBT-affirmative therapy,” which suggests that therapists should affirm clients’ sexual orientations rather than reinforce sexual minorities’ experiences of stigma and marginalization. And though the academic literature on LGBT-affirmative therapy is proliferating, there remains little consensus on what exactly this means conceptually and what it looks like in practice. This interdisciplinary research explores psychology’s ongoing project of both producing what constitutes LGBT issues and the practices used to treat them therapeutically. Based on analysis of over 2,000 minutes of recently produced psychotherapy training videos, I will explore what these films suggest an LGBT-affirmative psychotherapist looks like: what does she know, what does she (not) do, and how is her approach any different from therapy-as-usual? In the complex space where science, culture, beliefs, and attitudes about sexual orientation, gender, and other dimensions of identity collide, what is the new psychotherapy of sexual orientation?

    Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is celebrated nationally in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, which were a tipping point for the gay rights movement in the U.S. Nationally, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and memorials are held to remember members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally and internationally.
