Description:

Becoming Visibleaddresses the diverse therapeutic needs of bisexuals at every stage of the life cycle. This volume highlights research on understudied groups of bisexual men and women, including ethnic minority bisexuals, youth, elders, gender variant individuals, and bisexuals engaging in alternative lifestyles and sexual practices such as polyamory and BDSM. Practitioners are apprised of current research on bisexual and queer identities, why some people resist identity labels, and what bisexual men and women consider exemplary and harmful in their therapeutic experiences. This volume also helps practitioners distinguish between the stresses brought on by being part of a sexual minority and the clinical symptoms indicating serious mental health issues by including clear, helpful clinical interventions to be used with sexual minority and gender variant individuals seeking psychotherapy.
