Sections

Excerpt

Many other factors affect the treatment of gay men and lesbians. Many gay men and lesbians are in long-term relationships, and treatment for these individuals clearly must focus on relationships, parenting, and family concerns. The literature is extensive on the topic of what constitutes a gay or lesbian couple or an extended family as well as on the topic of couples and family therapy with gay men, lesbians, and bisexual individuals (Cabaj 1988a; Cabaj and Klinger 1996; McWhirter and Mattison 1984a, 1984b). The principles and techniques of couples and family therapy are the same as with heterosexual patients and may need to be part of the recovery process.
