"Martell et al. have done a masterful job of bringing cognitive-behavioral therapy alive for therapists who work with the lesbian, gay, and bisexual community. By centering their discussions of CBT in the lives and experiences of LGB clients, the authors powerfully demonstrate the relevance of this therapeutic paradigm to an LGB affirmative stance. The discussion of ethics and boundary issues is an extra bonus for the reader....This is 'must' reading for LGB-affirmative practitioners and an excellent text for graduate-level courses. Laura S. Brown, Washington School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Seattle; The combination of highlighting and valuing sexual diversity, while at the same time drawing on methods that normalize and humanize universally experienced problems, is a signal achievement. This is a most useful resource for clinicians familiar with LGB issues who want to learn more about CBT, as well as experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists seeking to better serve their sexual minority clients. It also will serve as a supplemental text for graduate students in a broad range of mental health fields. - Keith S. Dobson, University of Calgary, Canada Bravo! This fine, very welcome book represents an important and successful melding of two sometimes separate psychotherapeutic communities. The richness of the CBT model (including important, exciting, new developments therein) is integrated with the growing body of scholarly research and findings on LGB experiences. Specific frameworks utilize myriad examples to address the major issues facing LGB individuals and couples and to illustrate the applicability of CBT with these clients.
