Introduction

 

Sexual minority persons are a diverse population inclusive of lesbian, gay, bi (e.g., bisexual, pansexual, queer, fluid), and asexual sexual orientations. The Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Sexual Minority Persons provide psychologists and other mental health professionals with: (1) a frame of reference for affirmative mental health practice (e.g., intervention, testing, assessment, diagnosis, education, research, etc.) with sexual minority clients across the lifespan, and (2) knowledge and referenced scholarship in the areas of affirmative intervention, assessment, identity, relationships, diversity, education, training, advocacy, and research. These guidelines also recognize that some sexual minority persons possess diverse gender identities and expressions (e.g., transgender, gender nonbinary or gender fluid).
