Working with gay men from a narrative counseling perspective: A case study
Narrative counseling continues to gain attention in the family counseling field as a contemporary method of treatment. Scant attention has been given to the application of narrative counseling in working with gay males. Narrative counseling provides a framework to explore how cultural values, worldviews, power, and privilege influence the stories we live and impact emotional well-being. This article summarizes narrative counseling's major concepts, while concomitantly exploring issues that gay males deal with in relation to Western societal attitudes. A case study is provided to illustrate how narrative counseling may be implemented with this population. © 2008 by The Haworth Press. All rights reserved.
