A Psychoeducational Group for Parents of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Adolescents
Troutman, Omar A.; Evans, Kathy M.
Journal of School Counseling, v12 n18 2014
While literature abounds on the experience of the adolescent in the "coming out" process and the impact that the event has on the family system, few interventions that are designed specifically to assist parents have been proposed. Parents of lesbian, gay, and bisexual adolescents face challenges that they may never have anticipated and, therefore, require special kinds of support resources as well as factual, nonbiased information. A parent-specific psychoeducational group intervention to be facilitated by school counselors is presented with a focus on adult development in the context of a changing family.
