|Title:||Homophobia in Counselling Practice||Contributor(s):||Bowers, R (author); Plummer, D (author); Minichiello, V (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1007/s10447-005-8207-7||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/450||Abstract:||Current attitudes of counselling practitioners towards sexual and gender differences raise the possibility that minority clients may experience re-traumatisation due to in-session expressions of therapist homophobia. This paper explores these issues through a qualitative study that examines client and counsellor narratives on homophobia in counselling. The results describe specific examples of homophobic behaviour by counsellors. While individual examples might appear mundane on the surface, the frameworks they invoke and their pervasiveness constitutes a considerable threat to the counselling relationship. The paper argues that homophobia in counselling practice is a significant issue that requires sensitive, critical and applied analysis that redirects therapeutic efforts in the future.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal for the Advancement of Counseling, 27(3), p. 471-489||Publisher:||Springer||Place of Publication:||USA||ISSN:||0165-0653||Field of Research (FOR):||111799 Public Health and Health Services not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 195
