Treating Emotional Disorder in Gay Men
Emotional problems do not discriminate according to sexual orientation.
Therefore, gay men have the same emotional difficulties as everyone else.
Supportive psychotherapy for gay men with emotional problems is a gay-aware
approach to therapy that can elmininate a broad range of emotional difficulties
that gay men experience, but that are not exclusive to gay men. It is a diagnosis
based approach that shows therapists how psychological problems can be buried in
a gay context and guides them to recognition and dynamic evaluation that forms the
basis of a treatment plan that is simultaneously affirmative, supportive, and corrective.
