Summary "Deconstructing Heterosexism in the Counseling Professions uses the personal narratives of lesbian, gay, bisexual (LGB), and heterosexual counseling psychologists and counselor educators to deconstruct the heterosexist discourse in the counseling professions, envision a discourse of sexual orientation equity, and make practical suggestions for addressing sexual orientation in professional life. The narrative approach encompasses a diversity of stories and experiences including an emphasis on racial and cultural contexts. These narratives and their analyses support the individual and collective self-examination that is needed to move LGB-affirmative practice, training, and scholarship from the margins to the center of what it means to be a counseling professional." "Deconstructing Heterosexism in the Counseling Professions will be essential reading for graduate students, practitioners, and faculty who are interested in issues of sexual orientation and are in counseling psychology and/or the many sub-specialties of counseling. It will also be of interest to counseling professionals whose primary interest may lie in other issues of diversity, particularly the multicultural and feminist professional communities."--BOOK JACKET.
