WithNEIL REES

This chapter sets out to acknowledge the diversity of the sexual minority while drawing the reader’s attention to the common experiences of discrimination and marginalisation that LGBT people face and the impact of these on psychological well-being. It also looks at ethical approaches to working with LGBT people, starting with the practitioner’s own stance in relation to this work.
