   schema:reviewBody ""With this book, Kort sets the gay record straight equipping therapists with the tools and information they need to be gay-informed, and to counsel their patients as effectively as possible." "Here, Kort presents the principles of gay affirmative therapy (GAT), in which he has specialized for over 20 years in his clinical practice. GAT is not a specific system of doing therapy, but rather a framework clinicians can use to approach work with lesbian and gay clients. Its fundamental principles, and those that Kort elucidates in the book, include understanding and combating heterosexism; recognizing heterosexual privilege where it exists - institutionally, legally, and societally; and understanding and combating your own homophobia and that of your clients. GAT also explores the trauma, shame, alienation, isolation, and neglect that occur to lesbians and gays as children."--BOOK JACKET." ;
