Students and practitioners alike will find the depth of research in this text helpful in learning about alternative relationships, lifestyles, and how to support healthy same-sex relationships.Issues covered include relationship counseling, dating, parenting, recognizing intimate partner violence in same-sex couples, non-monogamy, marriage, and the importance of recognizing heterosexism (the system of bias and discrimination toward same-sex couples) in society and in oneself.
