Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Providing strategies fhat can be adopted by educators, counselors, community activists and leaders, and those working in the lesbian and gay community, the contributors discuss role-playing exercises, suggestions for beginning a dialogue, methods of "coming out" effectively to family members and coworkers, and outlines for workshops.

Book News Annotation:

Teachers, college instructors, and workshop leaders working in classroom settings; and social scientists working in grassroots multicultural communities and socioeconomic institutions, recount their findings about which techniques do and do not work in changing homophobic attitudes, and what mistakes they have found to avoid. Some of the topics are Asian Americans in southern California, support groups for nongay spouses, open conversations in senior-high English, a training model for beginning counselors, the Episcopal Church, and the media. One of the 36 essays has been previously published.
