Religious Experience, Gender, and Sexual Orientation
Author: Louis Hoffman
Increasing attention being paid to therapy with Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual (LGB) individuals generally has not addressed the importance of religious and spiritual issues for these clients. This paper develops an in-depth theoretical basis for understanding the complex religious experience of LGB clients along with developing initial formulations on a welcoming or affirming approach to therapy. The first part of the paper examines the religious challenges which many LGB people struggle including the common religious views of homosexuality. Next, we provide an overview of faith development and LGB identity development with considerations for how these interact. Lastly, we discuss implications for therapy, training, and future research.
