Using Group Therapy to Navigate and Resolve Sexual Orientation and Religious Conflicts
Yarhouse, Mark A.; Beckstead, A. Lee
Counseling and Values, v56 n1-2 p96-120 Oct 2011
This article considers the use of group therapy to explore sexual identity questions in light of religious beliefs and values. The authors describe the basis of their group therapy approaches for sexual, religious, and social conflicts that differ from approaches that provide group members only the option of sexual reorientation to an ex-gay identity or adoption of a lesbian, gay, or bisexual identity. The authors come from different backgrounds and discuss how their perspectives and biases can potentially affect group process and outcome. They present guidelines, structure, content, and strategies for their group therapy approaches.
