This book represents a valuable contribution to the literature on appropriate, effective and ethical therapeutic practice with lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) clients and, in my view, is the best of the three books in this series produced by Dominic Davies and Charles Neal. Although the book aims to explore the overlap between various models of therapy and LGB-affirmative practice, most contributors explain their theoretical approaches so clearly and concisely that the text also constitutes a useful introduction to these approaches. No longer will practitioners within any of the main theoretical models be able to justify applying their approach to LGB clients in unconsidered, acontextual or pathologising ways on the grounds that their approach cannot accommodate the challenges of LGB sexuality. This book cogently and persuasively demonstrates how this accommodation can be achieved for the benefit of clients and the enrichment of the therapeutic domain.

Another very well written and informative book from Pink Therapy.
Excellent contribuions from some well respected therapists, from differing schools of thought. They include; Analytical psychology, CBT, Existential-phenomenological, NLP, PCT, TA and psychoanalytic.
An interesting and thought provoking read, as well as being an essential resource for students or counsellors in general. There are clinical examples which are helpful, and each chapter is very well referenced to allow ease of further reading or research.
