Using the APA Guidelines for Psychotherapy with Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Clients in Education and Training.
Browning, Christine
The American Psychological Association's adoption of the Guidelines for Psychotherapy with Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Clients has the potential to change the education and training approaches in psychology graduate programs and internship settings. Current research suggests that many graduate students do not receive adequate information about sexual orientation issues. The Guidelines provide clear suggestions for exemplary practice with this population and may be used as a model curriculum for the development of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual (LGB) courses. The Guidelines may also be used as a framework for graduate programs and internships to evaluate the existence or depth of their current training experiences in LGB psychology. This may lead to formal criteria and impact accreditation issues. By endorsing the Guidelines, the APA suggests or recommends that their use is an important step in helping to provide a high level of professional practice by psychologists. The three guidelines related to the education and training of psychologists are discussed in detail. (Contains 12 references.) (MKA)
