Book Description

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most popular evidence-based interventions in the world, but little has been done to explore how it affects different groups of people such as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) community. The LGBTQI Workbook for CBT is filled with hands-on, practical perspectives for clients who are seeking a new point-of-view or for clinicians and students seeking additional tools and competence when working with sexual and gender non-conforming (GNC) minority clients.

The workbook focuses on skill building and addresses techniques for personal self-assessment, cognitive and behavioral activation, psychoeducation, and therapist resources. Incorporating structured learning tools to promote professional responsibility as well as ethically driven and evidence-based practices, this text aims to promote empowerment. Applied activities are available in multiple worksheets and reproducible handouts to utilize in session, in the classroom, in the field, and in life.

The LGBTQ Workbook for CBT is an invaluable resource for beginner or experienced clinicians, students working with sexual and GNC minorities, and clients, as well as an excellent supplementary text for graduate students in social work, psychology, nursing, psychiatry, professional counselling, and marriage and family therapy.

"Dr. Schott’s LGBTQI Workbook for CBT is a practical and most useful resource for social work students and mental health practitioners in the field. The workbook provides a panoply of exercises, resources, and tools for self-reflection, action planning, and strengthening of the therapeutic alliance via the lens of affirming practice and principles of CBT."

Michael P. Dentato, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor of Social Work, Loyola University Chicago, author of Social Work Practice with the LGBTQ Community


"LGBTQI workbook for CBT is a very welcomed answer to the perennial question about affirmative practice with queer people: But, how do you do that? This text is imminently readable, extremely pragmatic, and perfectly economical in breadth and depth — for both the client system and clinicians alike. Dr. Schott has distilled CBT in an effective way for all users, while simultaneously infusing CBT with the core ethos and practical strategies that promote queer validation and that help users along a path of healing from minority stress and anti-LGBTQ+ oppression. This should not only be part of the intervention toolbox when working with LGBTQ+ people — but it should be part of the educational archive for training practitioners."
