Internalized Heterosexism: Clinical Implications and Training Considerations
Kashubeck-West, Susan; Szymanski, Dawn; Meyer, Jill
Counseling Psychologist, v36 n4 p615-630 2008
This article focuses on implications of empirical research on the construct of internalized heterosexism (IH) in lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) individuals. First, suggestions for practice with LGB clients are provided using the framework proposed by Goodman et al. for social justice work at micro, meso, and macro levels. Second, ideas for the training of counseling psychologists on the construct of IH are presented. Ways in which counseling psychologists can train students beyond the traditional micro-level approach are included.
