This intermediate workshop focuses on affirmative therapeutic approaches for working with those distressed by their sexual orientation or identity and religion. Approaches for religiously conflicted adults and situations of sexual minority children and their families are presented. This program applies the findings of the 2009 Report of the APA Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation and recent research on family acceptance and rejection. Concepts are illustrated with video/film, a live demonstration, case studies, and interactive discussions between presenters and participants.

Learning Objectives
1. Recognize the major conclusions of the systematic review regarding SOCE included in the APA report.
2. Explain the recommendations of the five-element framework for affirmative practice.
3. Illustrate the clinical issues regarding conflicts between sexual and religious identities in religiously oriented same-sex attracted clients.
4. Comprehend the relationship between principles from the psychology of religion and the concerns of those seeking SOCE.
5. Apply the recommendations of the report regarding affirmative therapeutic practice to the concerns of children, adolescents, and families.
6. Cite some of the parental behaviors associated with acceptance and rejection of a same-sex attracted child.
7. Comprehend the ethical, regulatory, and public policy issues in working with children, youth, adults, and families.
