Product description


Winner of the 2003 Award for Distinguished Book in Lesbian, Gay, and/or Bisexual Psychology from the American Psychological Association′s Division 44 (the Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Issues).

This is an important work of scholarship, which is both a historical milestone and a signpost to the future. Above all, it is engaged in a dialogue with its readers and that can only be of benefit both to the psychological profession and to the lesbian and gay community.′ Professor Jeffrey Weeks, Dean of Humanities and Social Science, South Bank University, UK.

This is an exciting book that covers topics in lesbian and gay psychology in the United Kingdom. It includes current scholarship in clinical, developmental and social psychology, and promises to be a classic in its field.′ Dr Esther Rothblum, Editor, Journal of Lesbian Studies

"Readers will gain an appreciation of the progress of work on lesbian and gay psychology as it pertains both to lesbian and gay issues and to psychology in general." H.L. Minton, formerly, University of Windsor, Choice, December 2002

"The editors are well established scholars, and the contributors are experts in their respective fields. The fourteen chapters are all worth reading [...] Overall, the book deals with most of the topics that fall legitimately within gay/lesbian psychology. It is well edited and well structured. At the paperback price, it is a worthwhile invetsment." Sonia Gatzanis, Sexual and Relationship Therapy, Vol. 18, No. 1, 2003


Written in an accessible but scholarly manner, this is the first British-edited and authored collection on lesbian and gay psychology. Leading names in the field discuss a broad range of concerns cutting across social, health, developmental, educational and counselling psychology. These include topics such as development during adolescence, girls' friendships, identity formation and disclosure, parenting and family issues, health issues, psychotherapy and social attitudes. The struggle to legitimise lesbian and gay psychology has been a local as well as an international one, and the contributors to this volume share some of the characteristics which have distinguished the development of the discipline in Britain. Typical of the British approach are engagement with both feminist and critical perspectives, the use of qualitative as well as quantitative methods, and theoretical and epistemological sophistication. The volume as a whole takes lesbian and gay psychology forward into the twenty-first century.
