This comprehensive, practical, easy-to-read guide for emerging and current practitioners, as well as LGBTI individuals, combines theory, research and practice to help readers become effective counselors. Students and clinicians will gain relevant and up-to-date knowledge about LGBTI groups, and will develop the skills needed to work effectively with each subgroup in an empathetic and understanding manner. Additionally, to enhance practitioners’ multicultural competency to counsel LGBTI clients and prepare them for practice in an increasingly global landscape, the author explores cultural differences around the world and discusses how LGBTI identities change from region to region. Counseling LGBTI Clients challenges and changes beliefs about and attitudes toward each LGBTI subgroup, while preparing practitioners to provide sensitive, informed, and effective affirmative counseling to this largely misunderstood population.

Then they came for me,

and there was no one left to speak out for me.
