“Overall this is a very strong guidebook for helping professionals who work with LGBTQ+ clients. The editors should be applauded for organizing each facet of this massive notebook into a cohesive book.”
Michael P. Chaney, Oakland University

“This text stimulates clinicians to think of the many questions they should ask to ensure that their counseling sessions are LGBTQQ+ affirming. I believe the drive to ask and answer even more questions about queer and trans mental health therapy is this text’s ultimate contribution to the discipline and the profession. It provides resources that we might not have even realized that we need.”
Anneliese Singh, University of Georgia

“Joy Whitman and Cyndy Boyd share a queer treasure trove of innovative and practical exercises for use with LGBTQ+ clients. This must have resource brings together top clinicians and scholars who share therapeutic best-practices for affirming and supporting queer and trans clients across a variety of contexts and issues.”
David P. Rivera, PhD, Queens College, City University of New York

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS & HANDOUTS FOR LGBTQ + CLIENTS is a welcome addition to any mental health training program, or post-Master’s advanced seminar in counseling members of the LGBTQ+ community. Intriguing exercises and interventions that can supplement empathic treatment planning for best practice with a focus on intersectionality in counseling. A solid, engaging addition to the literature.”
Catherine Roland, EdD, LPC, NCC, Past-President, American Counseling Association

“The resources in this book represents a significant source of activities for LGBTQ+ clients regardless of their social location. Authors of the homework exercises have been very thoughtful in the design of their activities and are clear to identify when an activity would not be indicated. There are a large number of activities devoted to transgender and nonbinary clients. If you work with LGBTQ+ clients, you need this in your library!”

“Dr.’s Whitman and Boyd have woven together a revolutionary resource that is desperately needed by mental health professionals. An incredibly creative compilation of exercises that not only apply effortlessly to allies and members of the LGBTQ+ communities but they also cut across issues related to lifespan milestones and the intersectionality of multiple identities. I know of no other resource in existence—buy it, use it in the classroom, use it with your clients and, dare I say it, use it with yourself. Bravo!”
Colleen R. Logan, PhD, LPC-S, Southern Methodist University
