Growth and Intimacy for Gay Men: A Workbook is an educational workbook for gay men that covers a variety of topics, including family of origin, addiction, self-image, dating and relationships, AIDS and multiple loss, and spirituality. Each chapter provides an overview of the mental health concerns of gay men, as well as exercises the reader can do to facilitate his personal understanding of the issues covered. While the book is written in nontechnical language, making it useful to the general public, its wide selection of workbook exercises makes it useful for psychotherapists and counselors working with gay men.
This book will help you answer questions such as: How do I prepare myself and my family for raising this child? Do the effects of childhood trauma and abuse last forever? How do I talk with my child about his past? What does my child really think about himself? How do I facilitate the bond between me and my child? How do I help my child make good choices? What kind of therapist should my child see? How do I make sense out of confusing behaviors? How can I tell if my child requires psychiatric medication? What do I need to know about my child's attachment style? What do all those diagnostic terms, like ADHD, mean? In other words, this book will provide you with step-by-step solutions you need to care for a child who is adopted or in foster care.
