The lesbian, gay, and bisexual community seeks therapy at a higher rate than their heterosexual counterparts. Therefore, it is imperative that counseling students are educated in the coming out process, sexual identity, and LGB issues in counseling. The session will explore sexual identity, the coming out process, current legislation effecting LGB individuals, and gay affirmative therapy. Suggestions will be offered on how to implement a model for LGB affirmation in counselor education programs. The session will conclude with a review of resources that support the LGB community.
