Sexual minority youth need specialized treatment from therapists
Date:6/18/2013

sary background will include, but is not limited to, familiarity with the development of and variation within human sexuality and gender, detailed understanding of ethical issues, competence in affirmative psychotherapy, and clinical skills for managing suicide risk.

In his paper, published in Ethics and Behavior, Dopp made recommendations on how psychologists can best prepare to meet LGBTQ youth's needs, including:

  • Broadly disseminate and continue to update professional guidelines and training resources,such as the American Psychological Association's Guidelines for Psychotherapy With Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Clients and the American Counseling Association's Competencies for Counseling With Transgender Clients.

  • Actively advocate for affirmative psychotherapy and reject therapies that treat sexual minority identity as a disease

  • Continue to build knowledge regarding sexual orientation and identity development in youth

  • Develop reliable diagnostic tools to assess and treat transgender youth

Dopp's paper, "Treatment of Sexual Minority Youth: Ethical Considerations for Professionals in Psychology," was published in the journal Ethics and Behavior. The paper resulted from an assignment in an MU course taught by Nan Presser. The paper won an honorable mention in the American Psychological Association's Graduate Student Ethics Prize competition.

"Required ethics courses can be mundane requirements," Dopp said. "Dr. Presser turned her ethics class at MU into a dynamic learning experience and an excellent opportunity to develop and publish a paper."
