Becoming Gay: The Journey to Self-Acceptance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now revised and updated for the 21st-century, Becoming Gay is the classic guide on how to accept one's homosexuality. By exploring the psychological development of gay men through personal case histories—including his own—Dr. Isay shows how disguising one's sexual identity can induce anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. Individual chapters tackle acceptance in any stage or circumstance of life, whether it be adolescence, married-with-children, retirement age, or living with HIV and AIDS. Dr. Isay's insights provide invaluable support to gay men and will enliven families, friends, and therapists who want to better understand the process of coming out and help their loved ones or patients to embrace a positive gay identity.

Synopsis:

In "Becoming Gay," updated and featuring a new Introduction, Dr. Isay follows his normalizing Freudian work, "Being Homosexual," with a consideration of how men accept their gayness. This book provides . . . insight for both analysts and patients to ponder and adopt ("The Washington Post").

Synopsis:

Dr. Richard Isay is a professor of psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic and a faculty member of the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. He was instrumental in getting the American Psychoanalytic Association to adopt a non-discrimination policy for the training of candidates.
