Course Description:
This course is based on the guidelines for psychotherapy published and promulgated through the American Psychological Association. This publication includes 16 guidelines for practice which are divided into 4 categories; attitudes toward homosexuality and bisexuality; relationships and families; issues of diversity and education. These guidelines provide psychologists and other mental health professionals with principles by which to guide their practice and interventions with lesbian, gay and bisexual clients.

This course provides useful information for a wide range of disciplines who work with gay and lesbian clients.  It provides guidelines for interactions that are based upon respect and dignity for clients.  Although the principles were produced by the APA, they are helpful for social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and certified addiction professionals as well. 

This course is appropriate for psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, midwives and others.  This course is targeted for all levels of practitioner, particularly those with little training or experience working with lesbian, gay and bisexual clients.

Author: American Psychological Association
