Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A therapist who treats LGBTQ clients often must be more than "gay friendly." Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients have specific needs that require their own knowledge base. This book offers up-to-date information for clinicians treating LGBTQ clients, including new chapters on bisexual, transgender, sexually fluid, and gender nonconforming clients.
Review Quote*Joe Kort's LGBTQ Clients in Therapy reflects his extensive clinical and teaching experience in working with sexual minorities. His book is a good starting point for any clinician wishing to learn how to best serve LGBTQ populations. - Jack Drescher, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University, author, Psychoanalytic Therapy and the Gay Man

Joe Kort's contribution to LGBTQ therapeutic literature is substantive and trailblazing and should be required reading for any therapist working with LGBTQ clients. In this new book, the author updates the data and cultural shifts as well as deepens and extends his original contributions. While addressed to the context of a specific client, Kort's clinical insights can expand the consciousness of any therapist. We recommend his book to all therapists. - Harville Hendrix, Ph. D. & Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph. D., authors, Getting The Love You Want & Making Marriage Simple

This beautifully written, accessible book is not just for the straight therapist, every one of whom should purchase a copy. Therapists who identify as LGBTQ also will want Dr. Kort's book because it updates theoretical approaches to thinking about and treating the younger generation who think about sexual orientation differently than their elders. Plus, as an AASECT-certified sex therapist, Dr. Kort includes straightforward information on understanding LGBTQ sexuality that other authors shy away from. - Stephanie Buehler, PsyD, CST-S, Director, The Buehler Institute

This updated and informed clinical manual crafts a compassionate narrative for the trauma, drama and shifting diorama of gender and sexual relationship diversity in America.  By naming historical and contemporary psychotherapy ignorance Kort opens the readers mind to essential psychotherapy skills and practices for today's LGBTQ clients.  - Douglas Braun-Harvey, MFT, CST, CSTS, The Harvey Institute
