Talking about sexual orientation and gender identity in mental health, counselling and addiction settings
First edition by Angela M. Barbara, Gloria Chaim and Farzana Doctor, revised by Angela M. Barbara and Farzana Doctor

Format: Paperback

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, transsexual, two-spirited, intersex and queer (LGBTTTIQ) people have specific life factors that relate to substance use and/or mental health problems. These factors include coming out, gender transition, societal oppression, loss of family support, isolation, and the prominence of bar culture in their communities.

This manual will help counsellors create an environment where LGBTTTIQ clients feel comfortable talking about their sexual orientation and gender identity. This will allow the counsellor to:

best assess the needs of LGBTTTIQ clients
engage clients in a positive treatment process
develop tailored treatment plans
make appropriate referrals.
Asking the Right Questions 2 includes:

interviewing items to facilitate discussion during assessment or early treatment
an assessment form and specialized questions to integrate into your organization’s standard assessment
a glossary of concepts and terms.
