Models of Sexual and Relational Orientation: A Critical Review and Synthesis
Moe, Jeffry L.; Reicherzer, Stacee; Dupuy, Paula J.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n2 p227-234 Spr 2011
Many frameworks exist to explain and describe the phenomenon of same-sex sexuality as it applies to human development. This conceptual article provides a critical overview and synthesis of previous models to serve as a theoretical bridge for the suggested multiple continua model of sexual and relational orientations. Recommendations for how counselors can adapt the multiple continua model to improve their work with same-sex sexual clients are presented, and future directions for research are discussed.
