For more than half a century, The Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP) has produced position statements on relevant and controversial psychiatric topics. This latest monograph, Homosexuality and the Mental Health Professions: The Impact of Bias,continues a tradition of timely publications dealing with specific aspects of bias, discrimination, and human sexuality.

This monograph acutely identifies problems of bias, overt and covert, as they affect the treatment of lesbian and gay patients and as they influence the training of mental health professionals. Incorporating clinical vignettes that detail actual incidents from a wide range of clinical and professional encounters, the report enables the clinician not only to review his or her own experience, but also to envision alternative possibilities of constructive and caring intervention.

As psychiatry enters a new era of understanding the full range of normal variation in human sexuality, this monograph will serve both as an indispensable teaching tool and as an invaluable touchstone for assessing quality of care with gay and lesbian patients.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A thoughtful and comprehensive review of antihomosexual bias in contemporary American society and its effects on all aspects of mental health training and care. It should be required reading for all persons whose work brings them into contact with gays or lesbians -- whether as caretakers, trainees, social workers, psychotherapists, teachers, or forensic specialists."

- Judd Marmor, M.D., Franz Alexander Professor of Psychiatry, Emeritus, University of Southern California

"This excellent book addresses antihomosexual bias in a nonthreatening but direct and scholarly manner. It is intended for a professional readership but raises concerns that are no less important for the general public. After all, stigmatization and discrimination affect all individuals negatively, whether or not they have a psychiatric disorder. I have no doubt this book will stimulate self-reflection in all who read it."

- Allan Tasman, M.D., American Psychiatric Association
