Research shows that LGBTQ individuals seek therapy at higher rates than the general population, and yet there is a lack of effective, evidence-based treatment support for the unique challenges facing LGBTQ individuals. This workbook changes that by presenting cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques that directly respond to the distinct stressors facing LGBTQ individuals. LGBTQ-affirmative Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the first mental health treatment designed by and for LGBTQ individuals to have been tested in randomized controlled trials.
LGBTQ-affirmative Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: Client Workbook is designed to enhance mental wellbeing and help you with a broad range of mental health challenges, such as depression, anxiety, substance use problems, and psychological distress. Using the exercises, quizzes, and worksheets you will learn how to monitor your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors; confront uncomfortable emotions; and learn more effective ways of coping with your experiences. It can be used individually, or in addition to the complementary Therapist Guide in a therapeutic setting. This workbook provides essential tools for helping you to effectively respond to mental health challenges in an effective, identity-affirming way.
